Shark Attacks Surfer At New Smyrna Beach

Volusia County is quickly chalking up the shark bites.

It recorded its 16th shark bite of the year late Thursday just south of the jetty in New Smyrna Beach.

A surfer saw the two-to three-foot shark, and then felt it chomp down on his toe.

The bite was minor, causing just a few tiny puncture wounds.

The last time the county had this many shark bites was 2001 when there were 22 reported.
