Shark Attacks Woman At Camp Pendleton's San Onofre Beach

SAN ONOFRE (CBSLA.com)  —  A shark reportedly bit a female swimmer Saturday evening at Camp Pendleton's San Onofre Beach.

Officials said the woman was swimming with four other women when she was attacked.

The Orange County Register quoted a state park worker who said the woman was bitten on her glute "and down her thigh."

Two surfers pulled the victim from the water and used a surf leash to help stanch the bleeding.

There is no word on the woman's condition or if she required transport to a hospital.

Authorities said while the attack is being investigated, the beach could be closed for up to 72 hours.
