MELBOURNE, Fla. — A surfer suffered a non-life threatening shark bite while paddling offshore of Indian Harbour Beach Sunday afternoon,
police reported.

The unidentified man, 44, suffered a bite to his left hand and was seen bleeding profusely as he made it back to shore,
according at least one witness visiting Bicentennial Park at Ocean Dunes Drive in the beachside town.

Brevard County Fire Rescue paramedics and Ocean Rescue lifeguards helped the man with the injury
before he was taken to Holmes Regional Medical Center for further medical treatment.
