Tonight, a 14-year-old is recovering after officials believe he was bitten by a shark.
The boy was in the water on Tuesday at Kiawah's Beachwalker Park when the bite occurred. St. John's Fire Department officials say they responded to the call.
The child was bitten in his right leg. The injury is not believed to be life-threatening.
Parents of other kids who we spoke to at Beachwalker Park on Wednesday say they are keeping a closer eye on their kids, but these things sometimes happen in the ocean.
Bethany Shape was at the beach with her sister and their kids. She said, "It's kinda crazy, but we... are invading the shark's habitat, that's where they live... we do have to just be watchful and keep an eye on your kids and keep them close."
Andy Ingham has visited the area for years, "We've been coming here almost 20 years pretty regularly and have never heard of such a thing, so it's kinda surprising. But I think we're gonna be back here tomorrow. But we'll be a little more careful than we would have, I suppose."
Shark bites are fairly rare. According to the International Shark Attack File, since 1852, there have only been 26 shark attacks in Charleston County. Only 2 of those were fatal. Read more statistics from shark attacks in South Carolina at the link below.
