- A 12-year-old girl and a boy were bitten while in the ocean water off Fire Island.

Lola wasn't alone, with almost identical bandaging slapped on the 13-year-old victim who had been boogie boarding just four and a half miles away. He was taken to Southside Hospital.

At Sailors Haven beach, a 12-year-old girl suffered bite marks "consistent with a large fish" while wading, said Elizabeth Rogers, a spokeswoman for Fire Island National Seashore, which runs the beach.

"Once we figured it out it was pretty surreal", he said.

The spokesperson said he was able to walk onto a police boat on his own. "I think it was a shark attack", he said at a press conference. She said it only hurt when lifeguards started poking around the wound.

What appeared to be a shark's tooth was extracted from the boy's leg and will be analysed to determine the species of the creature he encountered while boogie-boarding at Atlantique Beach in the town of Islip, officials said.

Lola was in waist-deep water roughly 10-feet off the shore when it happened.
