Children Injured in Possible Shark Attacks Off New York Coast

Children Injured in Possible Shark Attacks Off New York Coast

Shark attacks on humans are extremely rare in waters off Fire Island, east of New York City, or anywhere else in the state, according to Ian Levine, chief of the Ocean Beach Fire Department, whose paramedics aided the boy who was bitten.

A spokeswoman for the town of Islip said the people were bitten off Atlantique Beach and Sailors Haven, which are about four-and-a-half miles apart, around noon.

Rogers said authorities had not confirmed the wounds to be shark bites, but said the Suffolk police marine bureau was waiting for the state Department of Environmental Conservation to identify the tooth.

What appeared to be a shark's tooth was extracted from the boy's leg and will be analysed to determine the species of the creature he encountered while boogie-boarding at Atlantique Beach in the town of Islip, officials said. The boy was able to walk on and off a police boat and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

"I thought it was a shark, because we were at the beach, so it wasn't like it could have been a tiger or something". The youngster was wading in waist-deep water when she spotted what appeared to her to be a three to four-foot shark. There was no confirmation that those sharks were involved in the two attacks. In a third possible shark sighting, the Superintendent at Jones Beach said swimmers were evacuated from the water at Robert Moses State Park after a lifeguard spotted a shark. One shark expert said that bites were definitely from a shark. The head lifeguard said the lifeguards and EMT assumed it was a small shark when they found the tooth lodged in the boy's wound. He said it was unlikely that it was a great white shark, because such a shark would likely have caused far more grievous injuries, and the victims may not have been able to walk around afterwards.
