GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Midway Fire Rescue responded to a report of two children bit by a shark off Pioneer Loop in DeBordieu, Georgetown County on Saturday, according to Midway Fire Chief Doug Eggiman.
Battalion Chief Jeff Pifer says a 12-year-old girl was transported to Georgetown Memorial Hospital with a bite to her thigh. She is in stable condition. The other child did not need to be transported.
The two girls were in a raft in the ocean when a 2 to 3 foot shark some how jumped into the raft they were in and started thrashing around - seemingly trying to escape. That's when the shark's mouth came into contact with the girl's leg.
At this time, there is no additional information.
