Sharks Bite Surfer, 9-Year-Old on Nearby Florida Islands
A 9-year-old boy and a 30-year-old surfer were bitten by sharks in separate attacks on nearby barrier island beaches, authorities said.
I'm glad my 9 and 11 year old have only happy memories of romping on the beach and swimming in the gulf on the coast of Texas. This poor 9 year old will probably be psychologically damaged when it comes to swimming in the ocean again. If the surfer was normal, he'd probably think twice about it as well; but then, I think surfers are a different breed.
