Fox 5 San Diego reports the attack occurred around 7am on Saturday (local time) at Beacon's Beach in Encinitas, north of San Diego, California.

The boy was flown to hospital by helicopter with serious injuries to his upper body.

He added: "He was conscious, he was above water, and the bystanders were able to get him up on the beach. and he was talking all the way to when he was being transported".

Larry Giles says the 13-year-old boy suffered traumatic injuries, but he describes it as a nonfatal attack.

Chad Hammel, who watched the scene unfold, told KSWB the 13-year-old boy could be heard screaming "I got bit!" as the water around him turned red with blood.

"Once we got him on the kayak we could really see what happened", Hammel said.

"And then I realized that he was yelling, 'I got bit! He needed help, he just kept yelling".

Hammel said the boy was bleeding badly and it looked like his clavicle area had been ripped open. When he and and his friends loaded the boy on the kayak and headed for shore, the huge shark followed them.

During a Saturday afternoon news conference, Rady Children's Hospital representatives said the victim is in critical condition.

The attack was reported before 7 a.m. this morning and Beacons is now closed.

"Our hearts and prayers and thoughts are with the young boy who's being treated right now and his family", said Encinitas Fire Chief Mike Stein. There were several divers offshore because it was the first day of lobster season, said Giles.

The area was closed for 48 hours from La Costa Avenue to Swami's Beach while an investigation took place with California State Parks, California Fish and Game, San Diego County Sheriff's Department, City of Solana Beach and the City of Carlsbad.
