shark attacks near Florida beach

Two shark attacks in the ocean off Florida's Gulf Coast on Friday injured three people

An aged lady and a small kid were among the two victims who were evacuated to hospitals to receive treatment for their injuries

In the initial attack, a 45-year-old female victim lost her lower left arm.

The 15 to 17-year-old victims were in water up to their waistlines approximately 4 kilometers away from the site of the initial attack

Bull sharks are frequent in the region

Officials closed public access and beaches in the surrounding area were covered in double-red flags, and anybody found to be in violation faced a $500 fine
