A teenager was bitten by a shark twice this past weekend in Atlantic Beach, North Carolina.

Officials say the 14-year old was surfing Sunday afternoon when he was bitten, not once but twice on his right calf.

The teen was able to swim to shore and was quickly treated with stitches at a local hospital.

This was the first shark bite of the summer along Atlantic Beach.
