Woman tubing in Intracoastal suffers shark bite

FORT LAUDERDALE — A woman suffered an apparent shark bite to her leg while swimming in the Intracoastal Waterway off Fort Lauderdale.

Broward Health Medical Center officials said the woman was undergoing surgery late Sunday afternoon. According to a television report, she was later released.

The apparent shark attacked happened earlier Sunday when the woman was inner tubing with a group of friends.

Meanwhile, a great white shark named Katharine that was being tracked by the OCEARCH institute has entered the Gulf of Mexico after causing a stir over off the same coast a week and a half ago. The shark was heading westward toward Mexico as of Monday, when a satellite caught a ping as her fin broke the surface. She had been moving steadily across the Straits of Florida.
