Paramedics describe responding to shark attacks

OAK ISLAND, N.C. (AP) – Beachgoers are back in the water at a beach town in North Carolina despite two life-threatening shark attacks Sunday.

It happened at Oak Island.

A 12-year-old girl lost her left arm below the elbow and suffered a leg injury.

About two miles away and 20 minutes later, a shark bit off the left arm above the elbow of a 16-year-old boy.

A shark expert says area beaches should have been closed after the first attack.
