Central Florida beach closes after shark bite


JENSEN BEACH, Fla. - A central Florida beach has been closed following reports of a shark bite.

Officials said a swimmer was bit on the lower leg or ankle Monday afternoon at Jensen Beach. The bite was minor and not considered life-threatening.

One local newspaper reported lifeguards were flying double red flags, meaning no swimming.

Officials said they will evaluate beach conditions later this week to determine if they'll reopen.
