There have been three shark attacks near shore since September during the northerly migration of both bait and sharks. In this instance a Lantana lifeguard was bitten on the foot about 20 ft. off the beach apparently by a spinner shark. The mullet migration was underway in this case. He suffered limited injury fortunately but still had some tendon damage in the bottom of his foot. All speed in healing Carlos and take care. This attack happened within two years almost to almost the day of the Deerfield Beach surfer accident detailed above.

More at about this case and the other three others in the area this season at the following link. A hammerhead and bull shark were suspected in two of the attacks. There was a tragic case of a three year old girl in late August within the partially enclosed swim area nearshore at Bathtub Reef. The child has had multiple surgeries and 100 stitches to preserve her knee.
