Miami Beach Area Swimmer Hospitalized Following Shark Attack

The roughly 4-foot-long shark was eventually pulled near the shore and had the hook removed before it was released back into the ocean, according to WWAY.

Miami-Dade authorities were summoned to Haulover Beach after a suspected bull shark left a person on the beach wounded.

Donovan Cecil, a witness to the attack, told WPLG that it "went straight toward" the man as he was trying to get out of the water and bit him.

This is the first reported shark attack at Haulover Beach, officials said.

Lifeguards said they became aware of a shark lurking in the water and immediately began blowing their whistles, gesturing for swimmers to get out of the water.

The swimmer was treated by lifeguards for bites to both his legs.

The victim was able to get out of the water, and was helped by lifeguards on shore.

"Although these incidents are rare, we still ask beachgoers to always be aware of their surroundings".

Shark attacks have been steadily declining in frequency since 2015, during which there were a record high 98 around the globe. "After some research, I've never seen an unprovoked shark attack in Miami-Dade County", said Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Lt. Matthew Sparling.
