Girl bitten by shark off NC is recovering well

Jul 26, 2011 11:45:00 AM - thestate.com
A 6-year-old girl bitten by a shark while riding a boogie board off North Carolina's Ocracoke Island has no plans to avoid the beach after the injuries to her leg and foot are healed.

Lucy Mangum's parents, Jordan and Craig Mangum, told CBS' "The Early Show" on Tuesday their daughter loves the beach and the family plans to go back into the water as soon as it's feasible.

The Durham girl said little during interviews with CBS and NBC's "Today Show" from a hospital in Greenville, but her parents recounted the shark attack that severed muscles, an artery and the Achilles tendon in her leg.

Craig Mangum is a physician and said he was pleased with his daughter's recovery and predicted she would be walking and running again soon.
