Andrew Costello was attacked by a shark Wednesday in North Carolina, becoming the eleventh person to be bitten by a shark since mid-May.
Costello, 67, suffered wounds to his rib cage, lower leg and hip. He was waist deep about 30 feet offshore near Ocracoke Island when the 6 to 7 foot shark pulled him under.
Costello, the former editor of the Boston Herald, was airlifted to an area hospital, where he is listed as being in good condition.
The recent spate of shark attacks has left many beachgoers nervous.
