Beach Patrol officials say a shark nipped a 14-year-old's right foot while the New Smyrna Beach girl was surfing.

Captain Scott Petersohn says the girl — whose name hasn't been released — has cuts and puncture wounds.

The shark bit her while she was surfing around the Ponce de Leon Inlet yesterday morning.

Petersohn says the teen was treated on the beach, then her father took her to a hospital.
