Shark bites surfer at inlet


NEW SMYRNA BEACH — A 21-year-old Green Cove Springs man was bitten by a shark while surfing Sunday, just more than a week after another man suffered a shark attack in Volusia County waters, officials said.

Laurie Arnold was bitten on the left foot just before noon while surfing near the inlet in New Smyrna Beach, said Deputy Chief Joe Wooden of the Volusia County Beach Patrol.

Arnold was taken in a private vehicle to a nearby hospital, where he was treated and released, officials said.

On Sept. 13, Aaron Edelson, 18, was attacked by a shark while boogie-boarding in Daytona Beach. He is recovering from his injury.
