16-year-old bitten by shark in one of four attacks in four days

A teen who was bitten on his hand and wrist over the weekend is expected to be OK.

Filippo Schiavo was out in the water at Vilano Beach Sunday morning taking pictures of the waves.

He said he was near the jetties and went to duck under a wave when he felt something grab his arm.

At first he thought he may have hit a rock near the jetty, but then caught a glimpse of his wrist.

“I come up and there was a big gash on the side of my wrist,” Schiavo said.

There was a gash on top and the impression of teeth cut into the bottom of his wrist.

“It broke these three tendons, causing me loss of movement (of) my wrist,” Schiavo said.

A woman at the same beach as Schiavo snapped a photo Sunday morning appearing to show a shark in the waves.

Schiavo is one of four people who have been attacked by sharks in our area in a four-day period.

A man was attacked in Jacksonville Beach Thursday, then another man was bitten at Big Talbot Island Friday. A 12-year-old was bitten on his knee Sunday afternoon just hours after Schiavo’s attack.
