The bite happened around 4.00pm at 3300 S. Ocean Boulevard.

The child told responders that he saw something small and dark dart towards him in the water before feeling the bite on his right foot near his big toe.

After the bite, the shark swam away and the boy’s foot was bandaged by fire rescue crews before he was transferred to Bethesda Hospital.

Officials have not released the current condition of the child, or said if he is still in the hospital.

This is the second shark attack in Palm Beach County, Florida in the last two weeks.

On March 31, a fisherman was bitten by a shark off of Lake Worth Beach.

He was bitten near 10 S. Ocean Boulevard, just several blocks from where the child was attacked.

The fisherman was bitten on his knee and taken to a local hospital immediately.
