Man bit by shark in IOP surf

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCIV) -- A man was bit in the foot by a shark Tuesday afternoon in the surf on Isle of Palms, officials said.

According to Isle of Palms Fire Department officials, a 42-year-old man was bitten. He had a three-inch cut on his foot and was taken to Medical University Hospital for treatment.

Officials with Charleston County EMS said the shark got too close to the man's family, so they guy kicked at it, which led to the biting.
