SURFSIDE BEACH, Texas – A teenager was attacked by a shark near Surfside Beach Monday afternoon.
The 15-year-old boy was with a church group and was swimming in waist-deep water.
He felt something bite into his left calf and reached into the water to pull the shark off, Surfside police said. The shark then bit his left hand.
A Life Flight helicopter rushed the teen to Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center. His condition isn’t known.
