Two swimmers at South Carolina’s popular Myrtle Beach were bitten by sharks Monday but were expected to survive, police said.

Myrtle Beach police said in a statement the first attack occurred near the waters of 82nd Avenue North at about 11:17 a.m. A second swimmer was bitten about 12:35 p.m. off the waters of 75th Avenue North, police said.

The injuries in both instances “were later confirmed to be caused by a shark,” police said. “Our beach patrol works with the Florida Program for Shark Research at the University of Florida to identify marine animal bites, specifically, sharks."

A police spokesperson said Friday the swimmers’ injuries were not life threatening and the victims were a female juvenile and a woman.

One of the victims suffered a serious injury to the forearm and the second a more glancing bite to the leg, police told media outlets.

The attacks happened about a half-mile apart and police said there is no way to know if they are related.
