The woman was standing on the shore at the time of the attack in Rockaway Beach where other incidents of this type but of a minor nature had already been reported.
A shark seriously injured a woman on a New York beach when she was standing on the shore, not swimming.
The 65-year-old woman was injured in her left leg, and a tourniquet was applied before being transferred to hospital, where she is in “stable condition with gravity.”
Already during the long weekend of the 4th of July bridge, three swimmers and a surfer reported shark attacks, all of a mild nature, which led the authorities to deploy drones with cameras to constantly monitor the presence of these animals. .
Now, the Police will patrol the beach to force all bathers to stay out of the water, while they carry out aerial surveillance in search of sharks.
The authorities recalled, however, that “although it is a terrifying event, shark attacks are extremely rare,” and specified that every time a shark is seen, surveillance measures are extreme.
Rockaway Beach, due to its proximity to Brooklyn and Manhattan, is one of the most accessible beaches for New Yorkers, and in fact it can be reached by subway line
