    Stay out of the water for now, common sense. Multiple shark bites in a fairly confined geographic area and in a relatively short period of time and people still want to go swimming. To quote a great American " here's your sign", hold on to it while I go get the major trauma kit out of the truck to try to stop the bleeding.
