HUNTINGTON BEACH (CBSLA.com) — Several Orange County beaches remain closed Friday after a surfer reported a run-in with an aggressive shark.
Lifeguards at Sunset Beach, however, gave swimmers the all-clear Friday just before 2 p.m.
According to lifeguards, a two-mile stretch of water from Surfside to Sunset beaches, along with a portion of Bolsa Chica Beach, will remain closed until 4 p.m. today unless there is another shark sighting.
Shortly before 3:30 p.m. Thursday, lifeguards learned a 10-foot great white shark rushed toward a surfer located off 23rd Street in Sunset Beach.
According to the surfer, the shark’s dorsal fin was exposed.
Lifeguards said the surfer was able to ride a wave back to shore.
No injuries were reported.
