Shark bites teenage boy at Cape Henlopen State Park beach in Delaware

Delaware beach now re-opened after shark bites boy

The young boy swimming at the beach in at Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware was bitten by a sandbar shark Monday.

The boy said he was standing in 5 feet of water splashing about when the shark brushed up against him and bit him.

Wildlife officials say this is alarming. The sharks normally do not go after humans. The sharks rarely attack humans and only four shark attacks have been reported at Delaware beaches since 1940.

The boy needed two dozen stitches to treat the wound.
