Two Florida teens expected to recover from shark bites

The Orlando Sentinel reports that two teenagers suffered shark bites off New Smyrna Beach within minutes of each other yesterday afternoon. A 15-year-old girl was bitten on the ankle, while a 17-year-old boy sustained a bite to his calf. Both were in “waist-deep” water when the bites occurred, according to the report.

Neither teen suffered what would be considered life-threatening injuries. Both are expected to recover from their injuries, according to Florida’s Fox 4.
