NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A Florida police spokesman says a 13-year-old boy was badly hurt after a shark attack.

Neptune Beach police spokesman Michael Key tells CBS News (https://cbsn.ws/1X6z3KI ) the boy and his stepfather were swimming in chest-deep water Sunday afternoon when the shark attacked.

Key says 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. He says the injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

Key said it was the first shark attack of the season at the beach.
