BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) — News reports say a 23-year-old woman was bitten by a small nurse shark in Boca Raton.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported the woman was taken to the hospital by ambulance Sunday with the shark still attached to her arm.
Several beach goers told a local newspaper they saw the woman and her friends antagonizing the shark.
A spokesperson for the Boca Raton Ocean Rescue told the newspaper the woman remained calm and there was a little blood. A splint board was used to support the woman's arm and the shark as she lay on the stretcher.
The Boca Raton Regional Hospital operator told the AP that the woman had been treated and was in the process of being released Sunday afternoon.
