PISMO BEACH, Calif.—Authorities say a surfer was taken to a hospital after being bitten on the foot by a shark at Pismo Beach.
The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says the 19-year-old man was bitten Friday while in the ocean near Silver Shoals. He was out of the water with a cut on his left foot when fire personnel arrived.
The surfer described the shark as approximately four feet long, brown in color with dark spots.
He was driven to a hospital for treatment.
Battalion Chief Steve Reeder says officials determined this was a credible dangerous marine animal sighting and advisories will be posted. Beaches will remain open.
