JENSEN BEACH — Officials say a swimmer was bitten on the lower leg or ankle this afternoon at Jensen Beach, which was then closed. The bite was minor and not considered life-threatening.

Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers reports that lifeguards flew double red flags, meaning no swimming.

Officials say they will evaluate beach conditions later this week to determine if they'll re-open.
