VERO BEACH, Fla. (AP) _ A German tourist is in stable condition after being bitten by a shark in waters off Vero Beach.
Authorities say 47-year-old Karin Ulrike Stei, of Konstanz, Germany, was attacked Wednesday afternoon.
The shark bit her left thigh, cutting a 12-inch laceration through to the bone.
Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers (http://bit.ly/KMm1rA ) reports the tourist was in waist-deep water about 30 yards from shore.
She’s being cared for at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center in Fort Pierce.
