During a three-hour period on Sunday morning, three surfers were attacked by sharks in separate incidents on the same stretch of New Smyrna Beach in Florida.
First, a 43-year-old man was bitten on the lower leg. Then, half an hour later, a 36-year-old man was bitten on the hands. Just two hours after that, a 16-year-old boy was bitten on the inner thigh.
While the wounds of the first two men were severe enough to get them hospitalized, the 16-year-old walked away with only minor injuries.
All three incidents occurred near a jetty in a spot known to have a lot of shark activity.
