A shark attack on a resort near the city of Lincoln on Friday has left four people dead and injured more than a dozen others.
The attack occurred when a 40-foot shark bit a fishing boat while it was moored in a cove.
The man was pulled to safety and taken to a hospital.
It was not immediately clear how the shark got to the boat, but officials say the shark was about four to six feet long and weighed about 100 pounds.
The boaters were fishing in a small cove off the town’s main dock when they saw a man and woman lying on the water and called for help.
The two victims were pulled to shore and were treated and released.
The woman who died was a resident of the town, said Lincoln Mayor Richard J. Stroud.
The other victims were a man from the nearby town of Southport and a woman from Southport.
Authorities say the boaters did not know each other.
The city’s beaches, popular fishing spots and popular tourist sites along the river were closed for the weekend and will reopen on Monday.
The area where the attack happened was designated a “tidal zone” and authorities were taking steps to reduce the impact on the river.
