NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla. - A 13-year-old boy was badly injured in a shark attack at Neptune Beach.
 
A spokesman for Neptune Beach police says the boy and his stepfather were swimming in chest-deep water Sunday afternoon when the shark attacked.
 
A lifeguard tower called in the incident, and the boy was rushed to the hospital to be treated for an 8-inch bite behind his right knee and top of his calf.  
 
Police say it was the first shark attack of the season at the beach.
