“A Shark bite is only one of many possible endings to a Shark Attack”
“An UNPROVOKED Shark Attack is only one of many types of Shark Attack”

Caution:
When you see the words Unprovoked or Bite associated with Shark Attacks, someone is trying to hide shark dangers you may face should you enter the water. In most cases, the word unprovoked equals the number of incidents shared with the public. Any other type of Shark Attack is kept a secret from the public.

COCOA BEACH, Fla -- A 17-year-old surfer was in fair condition Tuesday night after a shark bit him near Shepard Park in Cocoa Beach, according to Local 6 News.

The surfer, whose name was not released, was bitten at around 1:30 p.m. and was immediately taken to Cape Canaveral Hospital.

An emergency room physician confirmed the victim's injuries were the result of a shark bite.

Shark attacks tend to rise in the spring, when spring-breakers and migratory sharks converge in shallow coastal waters.

This is the first shark bite of the season, according to Local 6 News.
