DAYTONA BEACH SHORES -- An 8-year-old Kentucky boy was bitten by a 4-foot shark while swimming behind a condominium, officials said.
The boy, who was not identified, was swimming in 3 to 4 feet of ocean water with his father, said Sgt. Mike Fowler of the Daytona Beach Shores Department of Public Safety.
The boy's left hand and part of his left arm were inside the shark's mouth, and he suffered cuts on both hands, Fowler said.
The boy's father said he saw the creature swim between them shortly before the attack on Thursday, Fowler said.
The boy was in good condition when he was taken to Halifax Medical Center, said Mark O'Keefe, a paramedics spokesman.
