PONCE INLET, Fla. -- Officials said a shark bit a 15-year-old boy as he waded into the water to go surfing south of Daytona Beach, according to FLORIDA TODAY news partner WKMG Local 6.
The boy suffered minor cuts to the top and bottom of his left foot Saturday in the waters near the Ponce Inlet jetty.
Officials said the boy stepped on a two- to three-foot shark in about two feet of water.
An ambulance transported the boy to Halifax Medical Center in stable condition. His name wasn't released.
