SULLIVAN’S ISLAND, S.C. (WCBD) — Just hours after an alligator was spotted and removed from the waters at Sullivan’s Island, authorities respond to an ‘animal bite.’
Andy Benke, Town Administrator of Sullivan’s Island says, the Sullivan’s Island Fire and Police Departments responded to the incident on the beach near Station 22 Street at 4:20 p.m. on Monday, June 27.
We’re told a man, approximately 35-years-old, was in knee-deep water when he was “nipped” by a small shark estimated to be three to four feet in length.
The bite was confirmed to be from a shark based on a visual sighting by the victim.
Although the wounds were not life threatening, he was transported to a local hospital for further medical attention.
