Boca Grande, Fla. - A shark bit an Austrian tourist on the ankle today as the man stood in chest-deep water in the Gulf of Mexico off Boca Grande in southwest Florida.
Nineteen-year-old Armin Projer was airlifted by helicopter to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers, where he is in good condition.
Paramedics say the wound was consistent with a shark bite and witnesses said they saw the shark. The man was bitten near the lighthouse at Gasparilla Island Beach. The beach has NOT been closed to swimmers.
Two other young people have been bitten since Saturday in gulf waters off Florida. Today's bite happened far from the others, about 280 miles south of where 16-year-old Craig Hutto was bitten on Monday.
Hutto, who is from Tennessee, lost his leg in an attack off Cape San Blas in the Panhandle.
Last Saturday a 14-year-old Louisiana girl was killed when she was bitten near Destin.
Experts believe bull sharks attacked both teens in the Florida Panhandle. The type of shark involved in the Boca Grande attack isn't known.
