WPLG-TV reports that Lt. Felipe Lay of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue says the unidentified man was swimming Sunday afternoon off Haulover Beach when he was attacked.

The beachgoer was bitten on his legs by what was described as a 4 to 5-foot bull shark.

A day at the beach took a terrifying turn as a shark bit a man off Haulover Beach.

"Although these incidents are rare, we still ask beachgoers to always be aware of their surroundings", Sparling said.
