Beaches Can Cool You And Also Injure You

With the heat, many are heading to the beach for a little relief. Some go to Virginia Beach, which has seen a spike in marine life bites with four incidents reported in just the past week… that according to the Virginia Beach Rescue Squad. All victims received minor first aid, including a 10-year-old girl who suffered a shark bite requiring eight stitches. Other than that shark bite, the exact type of marine life responsible remains unconfirmed. Officials advise beachgoers to stay vigilant, avoid swimming near schools of fish or pods of dolphins, and always swim near lifeguards. You should also always know the nearest beach marker because knowing where you are can help emergency responders locate you more quickly.
