2 Men Bitten By Sharks Off Florida Coast

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla (AP) -- Two men have suffered minor shark bites in central Florida waters.
Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue Capt. Tammy Marris says the men were in waist-deep waters off New Smyrna Beach when they were bitten Saturday.
Marris says the men were bitten within a minute of each other. Both men described a shark roughly 3-feet long but it wasn't clear if the same shark bit each man.
Marris says a 25-year-old Oviedo resident suffered a bite on a shin, and a 43-year-old New Smyrna Beach resident suffered a bite to a feet. Both men went to the hospital for treatment.
Of the 30-plus shark bites since 2009 in Volusia and Flagler counties, 70 percent of them have occurred in New Smyrna Beach.
