Man Bitten By Shark on NC Outer Banks is 7th This Summer

Officials said a shark bit a 68-year-old man several times Wednesday in waist-deep water off North Carolina's Outer Banks. This is the seventh in a record-breaking year of shark attacks for the state's coastal waters. A hospital spokeswoman had no report of his condition Wednesday afternoon. Justin Gibbs, the director of emergency services in Hyde County, said the man suffered wounds to his ribcage, lower leg, hip and both hands as he tried to fight the predator off.
