Girl hurt in possible shark attack at Myrtle Beach



A girl was hospitalized following a possible shark attack at Myrtle Beach.

Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue Lt. Jonathan Evans tells WBTW that crews responded to an "aquatic animal incident" at 1306 N. Ocean Boulevard on Monday afternoon. 

Evans told the news station that a girl was taken to the hospital for treatment. He doesn't believe she had severe injuries. 

Evans couldn't confirm a shark attack, but said the girl was bitten by "some kind of marine animal."

The Sun News reports a woman spotted what she thought was a shark fin moments after hearing cries for help and seeing a family run towards the beach.

The witness - identified by the newspaper as Cristy Torres of Rockingham, N.C. - filmed video of people coming to the girl's aide and tending to a leg injury the girl suffered, according to the report
