Transcript for 3 victims in Florida recover from shark attack
Reporter: Eva, good morning to you as well. Florida continues to be a hot bed for these kind of unprovoked attacks. As you mentioned, two people were bitten within minutes at this same beach yesterday, unsettling news for swimmers as they try to dodge these warm temperatures. This morning, beachgoers in Florida are on high alert after three shark attacks on the same day. The first incident happened Saturday near Miami where a fisherman was bitten and rushed to a trauma center. Friends say he was fishing on a 23-foot boat off of key biscayne. Two hours later, two other attacks at new smyrna beach. It's known as the shark bite capital of the world. There have been four incidents in just the past week. Saturday one woman was bitten on the hand, another male was bitten on the foot. This summer has seen a rash of shark sightings and attacks up and down the east coast. Drone footage captured a shark swimming between two surfers at satellite beach in Florida. I was yelling to them, hey, there's a shark, there's a shark, and I don't think he heard me because he fell off his board at just the wrong time. Reporter: In less than a week in Jacksonville, surfline.com caught this, the moment 23-year-old pro surfer frank O'rourke struggled to stay above water after he was bitten. You have all the teeth, rows of teeth, just clamped onto my arm. Reporter: Up the coast in new Jersey, a fisherman caught this video of a great white, and this weekend officials in cape cod and nantucket closed several beaches for part of the day after more than ten sharks were spotted. What's even more concerning is that August is typically when we see a lot of these attacks. They say get big, get aggressive in the water when this is going on. Kind of reminds me of my brother Dan here when he gets an assignment he doesn't like. What do you do if you're so small that you can't get big? I'm asking for a friend. Just punch him in the nose. It's, you know, been a busy summer. Absolutely. Zachary, thank you so much. We appreciate it.
