Nine-year-old boy hospitalised after being bitten by shark while on holiday at Miami Beach


Jay Weiskopf, 9, was playing in the sea off Miami Beach, Florida, while on holiday with his parents Kristine and Ren Weiskopf on Sunday when he was bitten in the shoulder.

Ms Weiskopf told Local 10 that her son had only been in the water for a few minutes and explained that she was standing next to him at the time of the incident.

“I was holding his hand the whole time and he was kind of body surfing a little bit and he had fallen on his stomach,” Ms Weiskopf said.

She explained that when she pulled him up from off his stomach she noticed that the 9-year-old had a chunk of skin missing from his shoulder.
