FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. – A 12-year-old Georgia boy suffered “significant” injuries to his right leg after he was bitten Sunday afternoon in the surf off Fernandina Beach, according to Police Chief James Hurley. The boy was swimming in waist-deep water at the Jasmine Street beach access at about 12:30 p.m. when he said he felt the bite near his knee, Hurley said. He saw the shark and “began punching it as it moved closer and bit him a second time,” according to Hurley’s news release.
