Shark bite reported on Cape San Blas
South Gulf Fire Rescue volunteer fire department reported that they responded to a shark bite on Thursday in a since-deleted Facebook past.
The man, who was bitten on the leg, is reported to be in stable condition.
The incident occurred in an area north of the rocks along Cape San Blas around 3:30 p.m., according to the post. The victim had been shark fishing at the time, and was posing for a photo with the animal when the fishing hook came loose.
The man was assisted by SGFR volunteers, along with members of the Gulf County Sheriff’s Office and the Gulf County EMS. He was transported to Bay County for medical treatment.
