The Stuart man was surfing about 30 to 40 yards from the shoreline when he was bitten on the foot, Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue spokesperson Tamra Marris said.

The injury was minor and the surfer was able to get out of the water on his own. He was not taken to the hospital, Marris said.

Marris called it "a typical case of mistaken identity" and said that the surfer did not see the shark.

This is the first shark bite in Volusia County this year.

2 officers shot in ambush-style attack during Miami gang sweep

Two Miami police officers are recovering after they were injured in an ambush-style attack during a gang sweep Monday night.

The officers were conducting surveillance around 10 p.m. outside the Annie Coleman apartment complex near NW 60th Street and 20th Avenue when they were ambushed by two people and shot, Miami-Dade police director Juan Perez said.

John Rivera, president of the Miami-Dade police union, told the Miami Herald that the officers were in an unmarked car when the attack took place. Rivera said six people were involved in the attack.

“They were outnumbered and outgunned,” he told the Herald. “God was watching over them tonight.”

One of the officers was shot in the leg, the other in the arm, the Herald reported.

Maj. Hector Llevat said one of the officers returned fire, but it was not immediately clear whether he hit his assailants. The gunmen were able to elude police and remained at large Tuesday morning.

The officers were not identified, however police told WFOR that they have been with the department for 26 and 11 years, respectively.

They were taken from the scene of the shooting by fellow officers, who pulled them from the “hot zone” into a pickup truck and took them to Miami’s Jackson Ryder Trauma Center.

“They are lucky to be alive,” Perez told WFOR. “It’s been a while since I’ve seen a car hit by so many rounds. A high-powered weapon struck that vehicle and the officers should be counting their blessings today. We certainly are counting our blessings.”

Both officers were listed in stable condition Tuesday morning. Police continued to search for the gunmen responsible for the attack, who are considered armed and dangerous.

Animal lovers band together to give cat a full nine lives after fire

Local animal lovers are banding together to help save a cat rescued from a north Tulsa fire.

Officials say three cats and a dog died in the fire near North Xenophon Avenue and West Seminole Street Sunday night.

Firefighters say that when they pulled Fuego the cat out of the fire, he wasn’t breathing either.

They put an oxygen mask on Fuego and revived him.

A neighbor reached out through the "Tulsa PAWS" Facebook group when crews took Fuego to an emergency veterinarian where he could receive care.

Within just a few hours, PAWS members on Facebook donated enough money to ensure that Fuego would receive the treatment he needs through the week.

Fuego suffered severe smoke inhalation, burns on the pads of his feet and a burn to his cornea.

He is recovering well.

PAWS is still collecting money to pay for the cat’s ongoing care.

The owners will have an opportunity to take over his medical care if they want to continue to own Fuego, but if not, PAWS will find the cat a home.

All of the human residents who lived in the home were able to make it out of the home.

Investigators have not been able to determine what caused the fire, but they say a fire burned at the same home within the last few years.

Trump supporters, protesters brawl using MAGA flag, pepper spray after rally turns violent

It was hardly just another laid-back day at the beach Saturday in Southern California.

Violence broke out in Huntington Beach when people marching in support of President Donald Trump and protesters got into some heavy fisticuffs.

Marchers came out to take part in a Make America Great Again rally, and things got a bit wild when a protester allegedly doused a female organizer of the event with pepper spray. It sparked a brawl that ended with several arrests, according to the Los Angeles Times.

According to the newspaper, a group of Trump supporters, many of them holding blue Trump flags, tackled the man with the pepper spray, who was wearing a black mask. They started punching and kicking him, according to witnesses, as several other fights also broke out between demonstrators.

The man in the mask was chased by the crowd. He apparently jumped over a fence and started running along Pacific Coast Highway, where he was detained by California Highway Patrol officers.

As multiple fights broke out, video of the confrontations started to appear on social media.

Law enforcement showed up in riot gear shortly afterward and made a number of arrests in connection with the fights. It is not yet clear how many people were taken into custody.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Travis Guenther, whose wife was also pepper-sprayed, said he was among a group of people who chased the masked man and struck him with a "Trump, Make America Great Again" flag.

“I hit him five times with the flag over his head,” said Guenther, who yelled at the man as he was detained by law enforcement officials.

“How is your head?” he asked the man.

“We’re not xenophobic,” Guenther said. “We’re not racist. We’re just proud Americans.”

Good Samaritans pull woman, children from burning vehicle

Good Samaritans jumped into action to pull a woman and her children from their burning vehicle.

 A car and Jeep collided in Cecil Township, Pennsylvania, Sunday night, knocking the Jeep onto its side. Both vehicles caught fire.

 Brent Liggett and his fiancé drove up to the intersection where the crash happened, saw the flames and heard yelling. 

“I just remember him yelling, ‘There’s people in there,’ and the neighbor is yelling, ‘It’s gonna blow.’ When he said, ‘There’s people in there,’ I slammed the car into park,” Liggett said.

He said he didn’t think, he just ran to help. He and two other men pulled the mother and her children from the vehicle.

“The screaming, the flailing of arms, crawling through the car. It was horrific. I just remember I hooked my arms under her and pulled her and got her away.” 

Liggett said the woman was screaming for her children. 

“I told her they’re all out, but I said, 'You and me gotta get away. We’re still too close. I put her on my shoulder and walked up the hill,” he said. 

Moments later, the car exploded. 

The woman didn’t want her name released, but friends said she pushed her children out of the way, trying to save them before herself. She and one of her children remain in the hospital, being treated for burns.  

“I don’t think it’s so much heroic as it is being human. She deserves to be alive, and I would do it again tomorrow,” Liggett said. 

The other driver and one of the good Samaritans also went to the hospital. 

No citations have been issued.
