Young Girl Bitten by Shark at North Topsail Beach

Both WWAY and WECT are reporting that a swimmer was bitten by a shark at North Topsail Beach. The young girl was in shallow water when she felt something nip her ankle.

She was transported to UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill for treatment. Although not officially confirmed as a shark bite, officials at the scene removed a shark tooth from her ankle.
