OCRACOKE, N.C. >> A 5-year-old girl is in critical condition after a shark attack on the North Carolina coast.

Cyndy Holda of the National Park Service told WNCT-TV that the child was bitten on the lower portion of her right leg and a foot around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday on Ocracoke Island.

Holda says the girl was swimming with a boogie board in shallow water with her parents when she was bitten. The girl was flown to Pitt County Memorial Hospital.

A park service spokesman says the last shark bite along the Cape Hatteras National Seashore was off Avon in 2001, when a man died from his injuries.
