College student from Suwanee bitten by shark

— A Georgia Southern student from Suwanee was bitten on the foot last week while on vacation in Florida.

Colleen Malone, 19, of Suwanee was bodysurfing near Jacksonville Beach when she saw a fin slicing through the water. The shark, which she suspects was a small bull shark, swam up to her and bit her on the foot.

Malone required stitches and a cast on her foot. She returned home this week.
