2 children bitten in suspected shark attacks

Girl, boy bitten in water off Fire Island

In the first attack, a 12-year-old girl was bit at about 11:15 a.m. EDT (1515 GMT) while wading in the waters of Sailors Haven in Brookhaven, said Elizabeth Rogers, spokeswoman for the National Park Service.

Emergency responders at the scene removed a tooth from the boy's leg.

Shark attacks on humans are extremely rare in waters off Fire Island, east of New York City, or anywhere else in the state, according to Ian Levine, chief of the Ocean Beach Fire Department, whose paramedics aided the boy who was bitten.

The young girl, who was later named as Lola Pollina, said she was standing waist-deep in the cold water and described seeing a fin before returning to the beach to discover "my leg was bloody". In that case, 12-year-old Lola Pollina was bitten and suffered a wound to her leg.

Police told PIX11 they did not know if a shark or another animal caused the injuries.

A dozen new moons found orbiting Jupiter, pushing total to 79
Kenneth Chang at The New York Times reports that Jupiter was scheduled to pass through their search area, so astronomer Scott S. Sheppard said. "Valetudo's going down the highway the wrong way, so it's very likely it will collide with these other objects".

According to the Press, the last shark attack on Long Island was in 1948, one of only seven in New York State since 1670, none of them fatal.

Separately, a tiger shark seven feet long (2.2 metres) was caught by a fisherman at Kismet, another beach town two miles west of Islip, Levine said. Beaches within the Town of Islip and all Fire Island National Seashore beaches are closed for at least the day in the wake of the attack. "When I saw the bite, there was a bite on her leg, there was no question what it was". He doubted either of Wednesday's attacks was by a shark that large.

"The water is handsome, it is magnificent here. but the water can be treacherous", Carpenter said. The girl was able to walk to shore with help from her caregiver and was treated at a hospital.
