NC Town Keeps Beach Open After Shark Attacks

Officials in a North Carolina town said they will keep local beaches open, won’t put lifeguards on beaches and will “eliminate” a shark if it is believed to be a threat, after two teenage swimmers lost limbs in separate shark attacks off the coast of the same town.
A 12-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy both lost arms after being attacked at on Sunday afternoon off the coast of Oak Island. Helicopters and boats will patrol waters off the coast of Oak Island on Monday, but a well-respected shark expert said actions announced by the town on Monday aren’t the most effective ways to protect swimmers.
