Iowa boy bitten by shark while vacationing in Florida

SHELL ROCK, Iowa – An 11-year-old boy from Shell Rock was bit by a shark while he was with his family in Florida. 

Kael Dewey’s mom says the shark bit him in the foot. He did have to have stitches, but he is expected to be okay.

The family is now back home. KWWL has been in contact with them, and we are hoping to possibly catch up with them later this week.

Reports say this happened at Stuart Beach in Stuart, Florida.
