No reason to panic after two shark bites in two weeks

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (WTOC) – There have been two shark bites in the last two weeks – one on Tybee Island and one on Hilton Head Island.

Whether it’s Jaws or Shark Week, there’s a fascination and fear anytime the words “shark attack” are on a screen. So, for our purposes, let’s remove that phrase.

We start July 27, with a bite on Tybee Island in Georgia. Then, this Tuesday, Aug. 3, another bite on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina.

Some of you may be thinking, “two bites in two weeks, I’m not going in the ocean.”
