  • Girl, boy bitten in water off Fire Island

Gavin Naylor, director of the Florida Program for Shark Research at the Florida Museum of Natural History, said it will take two to three weeks to validate the incidents, and if they were indeed shark bites, they will be added to the International Shark Attack File database. The head lifeguard said the lifeguards and EMT assumed it was a small shark when they found the tooth lodged in the boy's wound. "To put it in perspective, there are more toaster fatalities annually than shark attacks-yes, it's more unsafe to make toast".

The victims - a 12-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy - were discharged after emergency medical treatment for their separate mishaps, each with a bandaged right leg, and both were expected to fully recover.

"I saw a lot of thrashing and her trying to get to me", mom Barbara Pollina said.

Lola believed the animal that bit her had been around 90cm-122cm (3-4ft) long. A lifeguard nearby helped to clean her wounds before she was taken to a hospital.

The girl, identified by her parents as Lola Pollina during a press conference, said she was wading through the water close to the shore when she felt something scratching her that had her scrambling out to find her leg was bloody. I looked and I saw a fin.

Experts have said both the tooth and the bite marks on the girl's leg were "consistent with a large fish". There have been four such closures this year, she said. With all of the talk about shark sightings off Cape Cod lately, some beachgoers might wonder: Could I be next?
