LEWES, Del. -

DNREC Parks Enforcement said a 16-year-old was reportedly bitten on the arm by a shark at Cape Henlopen State Park on Monday.

The boy said he felt something grab his arm about 5 p.m. while he was standing in about five feet of water. According to DNREC Parks Enforcement, the teen used his right arm to flail at what he described as a shark to try to get it to release its bite. The shark eventually swam away, the boy said.

The teen was taken to Beebe Medical Center in Lewes, Delaware, where he was treated for gashes on his forearm.

Chief Wayne Kline of Parks Enforcement said that the main swimming beach at Cape Henlopen State Park will delay opening Tuesday while biologists and lifeguards monitor the ocean.
