The last time Kendall Parker visited Wrightsville Beach she had a typical vacation, filled with sandcastles and swimming.
This weekend was different, filled a shark bite and trip to the hospital.
Kendall, 13, of Davidson, was bitten by a shark Saturday while swimming near the Shell Island Resort.
“I was in the water … and I felt pressure on my arm,” Kendall said, now recovering at home. “It didn’t even hurt because it happened so fast.”
