WATCH Teenage Girl Attacked by Shark Off Coast of North Carolina

A 13-year-old girl was injured after a shark bit her and her boogie board today in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, according to the town's mayor.

The teen suffered lacerations on her foot, but was not severely injured after the shark attack, which occurred around 12:40 p.m., Mayor Debbie Smith told ABC affiliate WWAY.

"It got a hold of her foot and bit her board in half," the caller says on an audio recording of the 911 call obtained by ABC News.

The shark was reported to be about four feet long, according to WWAY. It was not immediately clear what species the shark was and what the girl's medical status was following the attack.

The mayor said there are currently beach patrols monitoring the area, WWAY added.
