North Carolina beach town still cautious, on lookout after shark attacks

OAK ISLAND, N.C. (AP) – A North Carolina beach town is trying to return to normal after two youths were mauled by at least one shark over the weekend.

Oak Island Town Manager Tim Holloman says boats and a helicopter continued scouting the surf Tuesday for sharks, and officials are advising adults to stay close to children and keep them in shallow water.

A 12-year-old Asheboro girl lost her left arm below the elbow and suffered a leg injury Sunday afternoon. Nearly 90 minutes later and 2 miles away, a shark bit off the left arm above the elbow of 16-year-old Hunter Treschel of Colorado Springs, Colorado.

New Hanover Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Martha Harlan said Treschel was in good condition Tuesday. Harlan said no information about the girl was available at her family’s request.
