The Myrtle Beach Fire Department responded to a possible shark attack on Monday. 

Lt. Jonathan Evans says crews responded to an “aquatic animal incident” at 1306 N. Ocean Boulevard around 2:55 p.m. 

Evans also says a girl was taken to the hospital for treatment and he doesn’t believe she had severe injuries. 

He couldn’t confirm a shark attack, but said the girl suffered a bite from “some kind of marine animal.”
