Beware of Sharks- Cocoa Beach

Beware of sharks- Our friends' youngest son, 11 yrs old, was bit by a shark on Memorial day at Sidney Fischer Park. He was very fortunate that he didn't lose his foot but was badly bitten and will hopefully make a full recovery after his surgery. Will not be a fun summer for this soccer player.

the truth is yes, a shark attack can happen in any part of the water but it is RESPONSIBLE to inform others when and where they do occur. There is absolutely no point in trying to disprove someone that is obviously just giving others information that we the public are never told, in most cases, by news. The safety of lives is important. I also note that false claims can be made just as well as unnecessary disprovals but it's more common that the disprovals are for monetary gain. instead of honestly informing prospective tourists of the conditions surrounding a location is a sad way to make a dollar. safety is first! anytime we enter a sharks territory though, we take a chance.

Is this post just you talking to hear yourself talk? Beware of Sharks? As though you're the only person privy to this information. Were there people entering the Atlantic under the assumption that the waters were "shark-free"? Unlikely.

Sunshine817,

Don't forget the pythons (primarily in South Florida).
