NORTH MYRTLE BEACH — Police and EMS responded to 47th Avenue South in North Myrtle Beach where a man was bitten by a marine animal, said city spokesman Pat Dowling.
The man told a beach patrol officer he was standing in waist deep water when he suddenly found himself in the middle of a school of fish, some of which were jumping, when he was bit. The man told police he didn’t think it was a shark judging by his bite mark. He declined EMS assistance and left the area.
