Swimming Banned at 2 Beaches After Shark Sightings, Chomped-On Skate Washes Ashore

Two Long Island beaches have ordered swimmers out of the water on the hottest day of the year after a pair of shark sightings.

Red flags were put up at Lido West Beach and the adjacent Nickerson Beach in Hempstead Monday amid reports that a large bull shark was swimming in the waters off the coast.

The first sighting was reported around 10 a.m. at Lido West Beach. Lifeguard Logan Fitzgerald said he was paddling on a surfboard when he saw the maneater — thought to be between eight and 10 feet long — come out of the water.
