HILTON HEAD, S.C. — There was another reported shark bite on the South Carolina coast, WSOC reported.

A 9-year-old girl was boogie boarding at Hilton Head last week when she felt a tug on her right hand.

She pulled it out of the water and found blood coming from a bite. A medical student who happened to be on the beach used a lanyard to make a tourniquet before emergency crews arrived.

The girl’s family said she has had two surgeries since the bite and is still in the hospital.
