The parents were only 10 feet away when the shark attacked their daughter on Ocracoke Island, NC Tuesday, July 19.
The unnamed 6-year-old victim was on a boogie board in shallow water at around 5:30 pm before she was bitten in the lower right leg and flown to Pitt County Memorial Hospital in Greenville. She is alive and is currently in good condition. Thank God!
A statement from the parents issued by the hospital said the girl was in good spirits, saying: “I hate sharks. I like dolphins way better.”
No other swimmers were injured, but Hyde County spokeswoman Jamie Tunnell says bystanders described the shark as having a “black tip or black fin, which is the type of sharks that have been known to be in this area.”
