Shark Bites Surfer Off New Smyrna Beach

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. -- An Orlando surfer suffered minor injuries when he was bitten by a shark near Ponce de Leon Inlet.

Joshua Brust, 22, was surfing Wednesday afternoon when something grabbed his left foot in thigh-deep murky water, sad Beach Patrol Capt. Rob Horster.

"He suffered minor cuts on the top of the foot and the back of the heel that may require a couple of stitches,'' Horster said. "He said he was going to go to a hospital in Orlando.''

Beach Patrol records show this is the fifth reported bite in the New Smyrna Beach area in 2003, Horster said. There have been two other shark bite incidents in Volusia County.

Records show 22 people were bitten in Volusia County waters in 2002.
