Two hours later along the same stretch of beach a 16-year-old boy was attacked by a shark and lost his arm, according to the local officials. The boy was airlifted to he same hospital as the girl.

Witnesses described the scene ‘quite nightmarish’. One of the vacationers, Steve Bouser, said:

I saw someone carry this girl (out of the water) and people were swarming around and trying to help. It was quite terrible

While his wife added:

It was so much like a scene from Jaws

Immediately after the attacks happened, officials started evacuation from the ocean. Numerous all-terrain vehicles were sent to the shoreline to warn people about danger that was waiting in the sea. The helicopter was also sent to look for sharks from the sky.
