Nothing could be finer than a shark-free Carolina in the morning...

A seventh person in North Carolina has been bitten by sharks in what is becoming an unprecedented wave of attacks on tourist beaches.

The 68-year-old man was flown to hospital after being bitten on his hands and leg as he swam off the shore of Ocracoke Island.

He is the seventh person attacked since the beginning of June, fuelling calls for authorities to close some of North Carolina's beaches ahead of the July 4 weekend.

The spate of attacks began last month when a teenage girl escaped with only minor injuries and damage to her surf board.
