Shark attacks injure woman, girl in Florida

Associated Press

Officials said an 11-year-old girl and a 57-year-old woman were taken to hospitals after they were bitten by sharks at separate locations in Florida.

Multiple news agencies report the first attack took place Saturday afternoon when the girl was swimming at Huguenot Memorial Park in Jacksonville. Family members tell news outlets the girl was bitten on her back, arm and hand.

She has been hospitalized and will need surgery.

The second attack took place Sunday afternoon in Vero Beach, about 200 miles south of the first incident. Officer Anna Carden of the Vero Beach Police Department says a shark bit 57-year-old Mary Marcus in the leg while she was swimming about 100 yards off the beach.

She was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
