14 Year Old Attacked By Shark off Georgetown Beach

A bull shark was said to be the culprit of a Georgetown beach shark attack.  The girl was rushed to the hospital after being bite by the shark.  The shark was said to have bitten her foot while swimming off the beach.

She remembers seeing several sharks in a school swimming around her and that is when she was bitten on the foot.

“When I first got bit, it didn’t hurt because it hadn’t really clicked yet, didn’t seem real. Then when I looked back at my foot, all the blood in the water, I started screaming and I freaked out. Then I blacked out and the next thing I remember was being on the sand.”

The bite was not as severe as she had though, but she still required 70 stitches to close the bite wound.  She was extremely lucky the surrounding sharks did not jump in on the bloody watered action.
