10-year-old bitten by shark on SC coast talks about experience

Tonya Cox Turrell, Jei's mother, shared a series of updates on Facebook showing a bite mark and a scar left from his surgery.

10-year-old Jei Turrell was playing in waist-deep water with his brother when a shark bit him on his arm. It happened over the weekend in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

Jei Turrell was bitten Sunday at a beach on Hilton Head Island.

"There are so many black tip sharks in our waters right now and they're extra aggressive", said Michalove. "It bit, and then bolted off".

Deputy District Attorney Veronica Juarez wrote that Rogers assisted in the abuse of the children by her husband, Jonathan Allen. Rogers said she feels the family is being judged for having so many children and choosing to home-school them.

There were eight confirmed shark bites on Hilton Head past year.

"Something that may be a shark or other fish biting, you may see something like a half moon type of shape on the lacerations", said Mike Wagner from Hilton Head Beach Services.

The boy was flown to a hospital in Savannah, Georgia.

She said neither of her sons saw the shark until it attacked.
