She was transported to Halifax Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, Berard said.

Moments later, a 21-year-old male surfer from Crystal Beach walked up to the units on the scene and showed a shark bite to his right foot.

Berard said he was treated on the scene with bandages and refused transport.
