COCOA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A 10-year-old girl is recovering after being bitten by a shark in the waters off central Florida.

Officials said the unidentified girl was swimming in knee-deep water Saturday in Cocoa Beach when the shark bit her right leg. She was taken to the hospital with nonlife threatening injuries.
