Sharks are popping up in the news everywhere. This morning, they’re right here in Onslow County.
Jake Poland went to Onslow Beach on Saturday to catch a few waves. Instead, he came out of the water with a new nickname: “Shark Bait.”
Poland, 16, spent five hours at Camp Lejeune Naval Hospital on Saturday being treated for a shark bite. The bite was confirmed by personnel in the emergency room, according to Naval Hospital officials Monday.
Owww.. There’s a picture of his shorts (or what’s left of them).
“He’s kind of become a celebrity,” his mother said. “The phone has been ringing off the hook.”
Wow. Just wow. If that’s what it takes to get a date around here, I think I’d rather just hang out at the fireworks display.
