Two Teenagers Lose Limbs Within Hours in Shark Attacks at NC Beach

Beachgoers Rushed to Help the Girl After the Initial Attack

There was chaos on a beach in Oak Island, North Carolina, as two teenagers lost limbs in shark attacks, within hours of each other.  A 14 year-old girl who was visiting with her family lost her left arm and may lose her left leg as well.  She is recovering at a nearby hospital, with her condition unknown.

Critics are questioning why the beach wasn’t cleared after that attack, as a 16 year-old boy lost an arm only hours later and had to be airlifted to hospital.  Witnesses described the panic at the beach after the attacks, with one saying, “it was so much like a scene from Jaws.”
