A 5-year-old girl was bitten by a shark off Pirates Beach in Texas on Tuesday.
She suffered “significant tissue damage to a leg,” according to Galveston EMS, and is in stable condition at UTMB.
The Galveston EMS responded to the bite around 5:30 p.m.
Pirates Beach is located on the west end of the Island near Galveston Island State Park.
It's the first shark bite in Galveston since October 2015 when a 13-year-old boy was bitten after swimming about 25 yards offshore and had become surrounded by a school of fish.
