Kevin Dinneen 21, from Centreville, Virginia reported he was bitten by a 4-5 foot shark while
surfing at Old Lighthouse Road in Buxton, NC on Wednesday, August 24, 2011 Dinneen was
treated at the Avon Urgent Care by Dr. Jamie Fountain. The doctor estimated the size of the shark
from bite marks on Dinneen's foot. Dinneen said he felt the shark brush by him in the water and
agreed with the Doctor's estimation of size. Dinneen was prescribed antibiotics and given a
tetanus shot. This was the 5th reported shark attack in North Carolina this summer.
