An otherwise unremarkable day on the water became pretty exciting for some fishermen on a charter off the coast of Florida. They hooked a shark.
A tagged great white shark was tracked in the Long Island Sound near Greenwich, Connecticut.
Lola Pollina said she was standing in waist-deep water with her younger brother at Sailors Haven when she started to panic. She saw something in the water and then felt a bite. She suffered deep cuts on her right leg from what her father says was a shark attack.
Sharks are frightening and fascinating. A brand-new exhibit all about sharks is opening soon at the New York Aquarium in Brooklyn. The displays at Ocean Wonders: Sharks! offer a showcase of nearly two dozen species of sharks and other marine life found in the waters that surround New York.
