Teenager Says She Was Bitten By Shark

A teenager is recovering at home after her family says she was bitten by a shark on Topsail Island Friday afternoon.

Carley Schlentz of Greensboro was bitten on her left leg while swimming with friends at Topsail Beach. She received 60 stitches at a Wilmington hospital.

Topsail Beach police tell us there is no official confirmation of the shark bite and it is possible the girl's leg could have come in contact with a sting ray.

This is the first reported shark bite this year in North Carolina waters.
