In the U.S. city of Fernandina beach, Florida, five minutes there were two shark attacks on people. This publication reports the Washington Post.

He felt a large predatory fish that clung to his foot. “When I did, she pulled a couple of times and then released him and swam away,” says the man.
Theobald headed for shore, stumbling and hopping on one foot. “He barely managed to get out of the water, — says an eyewitness. He went rescue from the tower, and began to bandage and bandaged”. Shark teeth left on the foot of the victim two wounds with a length of ten centimeters. The man fears that could be damaged tendon.
