Two teens surfing in the New Smyrna Beach area were bit by a shark Friday afternoon, Volusia County Beach Patrol Capt. Tamara Marris said.

The first bite occurred about 1:30 p.m. near the jetty. The youth, who is from South Carolina, suffered a minor laceration on his foot.

The second bite occurred about 20 minutes later, Marris said. A Satellite Beach teen was bit on the thigh.

The youth were treated at the scene and released. They were participants in a surfing event, Marris said
