Three Shark Bites in Three Hours at Florida Beach

Three people suffered shark bites in less than three hours Sunday in the same area of New Smyrna Beach in Florida, authorities said.

A 43-year-old man from Longwood, Flordia, was bitten on the lower leg area or ankle while surfing about 10:40 a.m., 30 minutes after a 36-year-old Miami man was bitten on both hands, according to Senior Capt. Tamra Marris of the Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue agency. 

About two hours later, a 16-year-old boy from New Smyrna was bitten while surfing, suffering a minor laceration to his inner thigh.
