Teens injured in shark attacks off Carolina coast


Two teenagers have been severely injured in shark attacks off the coast of North Carolina.
A female victim lost part of her arm and could lose her left leg after the attack off Oak Island, near Wilmington, officials said.

Oak Island mayor Betty Wallace said the victim is not from the area but was visiting family.
Ms Wallace did not have further information on the girl’s prospects for recovery.

Brunswick County emergency dispatchers received the call and several agencies responded to the scene including Oak Island Police and the Air Link Helicopter.
The second incident was reported shortly afterwards. A 16-year-old boy lost an arm and was airlifted to hospital.
