Suspected shark bite at Jensen Beach likely caused by surfboard

TC Palm is reporting that an injury sustained by a young surfer yesterday at Florida’s Jensen Beach was the result of a cut caused by a surfboard. Initial reports indicated that boy was the victim of a “possible shark attack” based on his injuries. However, doctors who treated the boy determined that the large cut to his leg was caused by the boy’s surfboard striking him.

According to updates from the injured boy’s mother and grandmother in the comments of a WPTV article, he is doing well after receiving 28 stitches to close the wound.

The beach was closed to swimming after the incident as a precaution.
