OUTER BANKS - Another shark attack has been reported in North Carolina -- this time in the Outer Banks -- just days after two young swimmers lost arms on the same day while in the water off Oak Island.
The latest victim appears to be a man in his 50s, Twitter user Mike Will told WGHP. The attack apparently happened about a half mile south of Avon Pier, a popular surfing spot on Hatteras island.
The injuries to the man's buttocks and back didn't appear to be life-threatening, Will said.
It's the latest in a series of attacks marring the beginning of beach season in North Carolina. On Wedesday, an 8-year-old suffered minor injuries from an apparent shark bite.
On June 14, a 12-year-old girl and 16-year-old boy both lost arms after they were attacked at Oak Island while swimming.
Just three days before that, a 13-year-old girl riding a body board at Ocean Isle Beach was injured after a shark bit her while chomping away at her board. Her injuries were not life-threatening.
