Shark attacks target children at popular NY beaches

Undated file

The spokesperson said he was able to walk onto a police boat on his own.

Those beaches are about 4.5 miles apart.

Two youngsters frolicking in the surf miles apart along the Fire Island National Seashore in NY suffered puncture wounds to their legs on Wednesday in apparent shark attacks that would mark the state's first such incidents in 70 years, authorities said.

The last incident was in 1948, he said.

Only about 10 cases of shark bites on people have ever been documented in NY state, the last one in 1948, Levine told Reuters by telephone, citing information he said was furnished by Islip town supervisors.

Concerned husband Tyce was lowered to the ground where he gave his wife a kiss of of condolence as the audience cheered. Judge Simon Cowell echoed Jeong's sentiments. "This is not America's Got Perfection , it's America's Got Talent! ".

The victims - a 12-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy - were discharged after emergency medical treatment for their separate mishaps, each with a bandaged right leg, and both were expected to fully recover. The 12-year-old girl had several deep gashes to one of their legs.

"Once we figured it out it was pretty surreal", he said. The youngster was wading in waist-deep water when she spotted what appeared to her to be a three to four-foot shark. The beaches have been closed as police helicopters search the water for the shark or sharks.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo released a statement saying he had deployed DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos to lead a multi-agency investigation into the possible shark attacks. Swimmers were allowed back into the water around 2:30 p.m. when the sighting was deemed to be a sandbar shark. Carpenter, the Islip town supervisor, said a midsummer reminder was in order for south shore beachgoers. "So you need to be careful at all times".

Lola Pollina was bitten in what is thought to be the first shark attacks on people in NY in 70 years. EMTs removed a piece of tooth from the boy's leg that is now being analyzed. The girl was able to walk to shore with help from her caregiver and was treated at a hospital.
