Beach Patrol and emergency medical officials responded to the Ponce de Leon Inlet this morning to treat Volusia County’s 18th shark bite of the year.

Capt. Scott Petersohn said he had no details immediately available about the incident other than it occurred near the jetty.

The bite comes less than a week after an unidentified New Smyrna Beach man was bitten on the left foot while swimming south of the 27th Avenue beach approach Sunday afternoon.

The 20-year-old surfer was treated at the scene and then taken to Bert Fish Medical Center by friends.

The Fear Beneath is officially calling out the Volusia County government – protect your citizens!!!

This is the THIRD shark attack in New Smyrna Beach in the last TWO WEEKS! Is the local government doing anything to address this urgent public safety matter? How many attacks is too many? Will it take the loss of human life to enact any security measures?

    You make your point like an ignorant asshole. Government isn’t there to protect people? What country do you live in? That is one of the main purposes of government – to protect its citizens.

    Your callous and insensitive opinion would play real well with the victims of shark attacks, I am sure. Perhaps if you had spent any measure of time researching the situation instead of firing off unintelligible missives from the hip, your thoughts would actually have some value to the readers here.

    Australia has implemented shark nets with some measure of success – why not do it here?

    Are you dumb or ignorant? These people enter the water at their own risk. Government is not there to protect people from themselves. Sharks are thinning out the shallow end of the gene pool. I live here and know the risks of the ocean and I, as others should, take full responsibility if I choose to enter these waters.

    Our editorial stance here is clear – something needs to be done to protect the beach-going citizens of New Smyrna Beach and Volusia County.

    Would bear or mountain lion attacks of similar regularity garner equal amounts of indifference? I think not.
