Supervisor Carpenter Reports: Town Lifeguards Keep Watchful Eye as Bathing Returns to Normal

July 20th, 2018 – Islip Town beaches remain open today with no reported shark sightings, as bathers, waders and swimmers return to ocean waters in the aftermath of two incidents earlier this week. Town of Islip lifeguards resumed their posts for the second day Friday with a heightened awareness, after two children were bit Wednesday morning by what NYSDEC determined were sand sharks in Sailor’s Haven and Atlantique. The children were treated at area hospitals for non-life-threatening injuries and released. Lifeguards are keeping a watchful eye on the ocean as the weekend draws near.

“I am so thankful to our ocean lifeguards for acting within a split second. We are grateful that the two children who were bitten are going to be fine,” said Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter.
