The lifeguard was one of several lifeguards who were in the water during the safety drill. On the morning of July 3, a shark approached and sank its teeth into a man, Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone said.

It is reported that the length of the shark was 1,2 - 1,5 meters.

According to Bellone, the victim was able to get out of the water and make it to the station, where he was bandaged, before going to Southside Hospital, where he received stitches. He added that the rescuer was in a "very good mood".

Bellone said someone spotted the shark after the morning's attack, but it's not clear if it's the same shark that bit the rescuer.

Smith Point and Cupsogue beaches will remain closed for the rest of the day, park officials said.

Lifeguards will continue to monitor the beaches using drones, kayaks and personal watercraft, in addition to surveillance from the shore.
