  • Shark bites man swimming off Haulover Beach

According to reports, the shark was a 4-to-5 foot bull shark.

"It started getting closer to the people in the sandbar, and they tried to get out", Donovan Cecil said. "One guy, it went straight towards him and bit his leg, pulled him, gave him a little tug".

According to a local NBC afflilate, Wrightsville Beach Police say the fisherman caught the shark on his line near a pier in North Carolina on Thursday night.

The man, who was able to get out of the water and get aid from lifeguards, was taken to Aventura Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, officials said. The man, whose name was not released, was exiting the waters when he was bitten in both legs by a shark.

It was a thrilling finish to a remarkable stage, but the nasty crashes for Thomas and Porte took the shine off the day's racing. I've just seen the images of Richie Porte's crash and that leaves you with a disgusting feeling.

The man remained in the water after lifeguards told swimmers to get out of the water, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokeswoman Erika Benitez told NBC6.com. "This is the first shark attack in Miami-Dade County that I've been aware of working 20 years in ocean rescue".

The man then tries again to grab the the small tiger shark, but the shark had other plans and viciously bites the man on his hand.

"When you've got large numbers of sharks, the prey they feed on [seals] and people in the water, the potential of an interaction is there", Skomal said.
