Teen gets ‘minor’ shark bite on Kiawah
A 14-year-old boy was bitten by a shark Tuesday on Kiawah Island, but it wasn’t a deep wound.
“In comparison to most shark bites, it was a minor wound,” Charleston County EMS Director Don Lundy said.
The boy was bitten on his lower right leg. EMS received the call at 12:45 p.m.
The boy was “very stable” on the way to the hospital and “fine otherwise,” Lundy said.
Lifeguards had the wound dressed by the time the first emergency crews arrived, according to the St. Johns Fire Department.
