Miami-Dade authorities were summoned to Haulover Beach after a suspected bull shark left a person on the beach wounded.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials say the shark was spotted around 3 p.m. headed close to shore.
A Sunny Isles lifeguard drives a personal watercraft near a shark in the waters of Haulover Beach on Sunday, July 9, 2017.
Right before the attack, lifeguards at Haulover Beach in Miami immediately began blowing their whistles after spotting the shark in the water, according to Local 10.
The beachgoer was bitten on his legs by what was described as a 4 to 5-foot bull shark.
The unidentified victim was able to safely exit the water onto the beach, where lifeguards assisted the man and assessed the gashes on both of his legs.
He was helped by lifeguards and taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. In an interview with WPLG, Lt. Matt Sparling warned those flocking to the beach this summer to be alert while in the ocean. Past year saw just 81 unprovoked attacks around the world, 32 of which took place in Florida according to the International Shark Attack File at the University of Florida.
The man then tries again to grab the the small tiger shark, but the shark had other plans and viciously bites the man on his hand.
