A man swimming at a popular beach in the region is believed to have been bitten by a shark, according to authorities.

The incident happened on Long Island at around 1 p.m. Thursday, June 30 in Wantagh.

Nassau County Police say a 37-year-old man was swimming in the ocean at Jones Beach when he sustained a laceration to his right foot. 

The man was treated for his injuries at Jones Beach and then was transported to a local hospital by medics from the Nassau County Police Department Emergency Ambulance Bureau. 

"The nature of the injury is considered a possible shark bite," police said.

The Nassau County Police Department will have increased patrols at all Nassau beaches over the extended 4th of July holiday weekend.
