New Smyrna Beach -- A 33-year-old Orlando man was bitten on the right thigh by a small shark off New Smyrna Beach on Sunday evening.
Officials with the Volusia County Beach Patrol said the shark that bit Christopher Duncan, who recently moved to Central Florida from Michigan, was about 3 feet long.
Scott Petersohn, a Beach Patrol spokesman, said the incident occurred about 5:30 p.m. in the northern section of the beach near Sapphire Road.
Duncan went to Bert Fish Medical Center in New Smyrna Beach because he probably needed stitches, Petersohn said.
Petersohn called it a minor incident. "The shark was not out to eat this guy," he said. "It basically bumped into him and bit him."
