A shark attack in Sandbridge sent a surfer to the hospital Friday afternoon.
The teenager was surfing off of Sandfiddler Rd. around 4:00 p.m. He was bit several times on his left knee and ankle.
He was rushed to the hospital but is expected to be fine.
Rescue crews believe the attack was by a small shark.
Bruce Nedelka, an EMS spokesman, said, “The shark wasn’t big enough to pull him down into the water, so most likely it was only a small shark.”
The teen’s surfboard is being looked at so the type of shark can be determined.
