Surfer bitten by shark at popular Oregon surfing spot

SEASIDE, Ore. (AP) — A surfer in Seaside, Oregon, was bitten by a shark and suffered non-life-threatening injuries to his lower leg. The incident took place about 3:20 p.m. Sunday in a popular surfing spot in South Seaside known as The Cove, near Tillamook Head. That’s according to Jon Rahl, a spokesman for the City of Seaside. Fire and medics arrived at the scene to find the adult man being carried to the parking lot by fellow surfers. An off-duty Seaside lifeguard had applied a tourniquet to the man’s leg to slow the bleeding. The victim was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. His condition is not known.
