And We Have a Tie! New Smyrna Gets 22nd Shark Bite!


According to NewsJournalOnline a 32-year-old tourist earned the honor of becoming the 22nd shark bite victim of the year in Volusia County today, tying the previous record set in 2001.

Volusia County Beach Patrol spokesman Capt. Scott Petersohn said the Tennessee visitor was swimming off the 1000 block of Ocean Shore Boulevard in Ormond-by-the-Sea when he was bit once just before noon. The man, whose name is not yet available, was swimming in waist-deep water when a wave knocked him from his feet. While his feet were off the bottom, the swimmer felt something grab his heel.

The shark left a couple nice lacerations on the victim.
