National Park Service says Sailors Haven beach, where the 12-year-old was bitten, will also be reopened for swimming today with additional lifeguards monitoring the water and patrols continuing along the Fire Island shoreline.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation said investigators are now analyzing a fragment of tooth to determine the specific species of fish that bit the boy.

Angie Carpenter, the town supervisor for Islip, N.Y., held a press conference Wednesday afternoon and said the boy and the girl were treated at local hospitals and, "thank God, are OK".

Great white shark Hilton breached the surface of the waters off the coast of Long Island this week, according to scientists at the non-profit group OCEARCH.

The shark was one of two pulled from the waters off of Atlantique Beach this morning, including an 8-foot whopper, the same ABC reporter tweeted, citing Town of Islip officials.

Authorities have yet to confirm whether the two teenagers were effectively targeted by a shark.

"I saw something, like, next to me, and I kind of felt pain, and looked and I saw a fin", she said, adding: "We went to the lifeguards, we ran up to them and they kind of bandaged it". "Sand tiger sharks are not known to be aggressive toward humans".

The incidents resulted in some beaches being closed, and two sharks were reported to have been caught nearby later in the day - although they were not confirmed to be the creatures responsible.
