Sharks bite three people on the same beach in separate attacks within 24 hours

Sharks bite three people on the same beach in separate attacks within 24 hoursThree people have been bitten by sharks on the same beach in just 24 hours, with two attacks occurring within 30 minutes of each other.Multiple separate attacks were recorded over the weekend at New Smyrna Beach in Florida, an area which has been called the “shark attack capital of the world”.A 20-year-old surfer, Emily Comfort, was bitten on her left hand and wrist on Saturday, according to Volusia County Beach Safety, and taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.Approximately half an hour later, a 21-year-old surfer named Riley Petrovich was treated for a shark bite on his right foot.He refused transport to a hospital, according to officials.On Sunday, beach officials reported that 51-year-old Peter Bourbeau was bitten by what he described as a 4ft shark while standing in knee-deep water.Mr Bourbeau said he kicked the shark and it swam away.It is not known whether any of the attacks were committed by the same predator.Gavin Naylor, director of the Florida Programme for Shark Research at the Florida Museum of Natural History, told CNN that sharks are often drawn to New Smyrna Beach by bait fish which gather nearby.“If you like to surf and you surf in this particular spot, the chances are high that you have been within 10ft of a shark,” he said.“The surfers all know this. They routinely report seeing sharks in the area. While it may be news to the non-surfing community, it is widely-known to scientists and surfers.”Shark sightings are relatively common in Volusia County, where there has been 303 unprovoked attacks recorded since 1882, according to research by the Florida Museum of Natural History.That number is the highest for a county in the US.There have been 1,441 confirmed unprovoked shark attacks in the US since 1837 with the majority occurring in Florida (828 attacks), according to the museum.In 2018, the museum reported 16 unprovoked shark attacks in the state, accounting for half of all such attacks in the US last year.

Police officer accuses McDonald's workers of taking bite out of sandwich then admits he ‘forgot he ate it’

Police officer accuses McDonald's workers of taking bite out of sandwich then admits he ‘forgot he ate it’A police officer wrongly accused McDonald’s workers of taking a bite out of his sandwich after he forgot he did it himself.The officer, known only as “DJ”, ordered a McChicken before starting work at Marion County Jail in Indianapolis and put it in a fridge for safekeeping during his shift.When he opened it up seven hours later he discovered the missing chunk and became convinced he had been targeted by the restaurant staff because of his job.“I know I didn’t eat it,” he told the WTHR local TV station. “No one else was around.“I said, ‘You know what? I am going to the McDonald’s to see if they can get that taken care of.’“I just wanted to find out who the person was and they deal with that person in an appropriate way.”Managers at the branch on Morris Street checked the schedule to see who was preparing the food when he placed his order but found no evidence to back up the officer’s claims.The truth was revealed more than a week later when Marion County Sheriff’s Office announced that the mystery biter was its own officer, “DJ”.“The investigation has determined that McDonald’s restaurant staff in no way tampered with the employee’s food,” the agency said in a statement on Friday.“The employee took a bite out of the sandwich upon starting his shift at the Marion County Jail, then placed it in the refrigerator in a break room.“He returned nearly seven hours later having forgotten that he had previously bitten the sandwich.“He wrongly concluded that a McDonald’s restaurant employee had tampered with his food because he is a law enforcement officer.” The officer formally apologised to McDonald’s for his error.
