WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) - A 13-year-old girl from Davidson is out of the hospital after being bitten by a shark Saturday near the Shell Island Resort in Wrightsville Beach.

Authorities say Kendall Parker was waist deep in water when the shark bit her arm.  She was taken to Cape Fear Hospital where she received 40 stitches.

It's unclear what type of shark bit her, but some speculate it may have been a sand shark.
