I hope the girl makes a speedy recovery and truly hope that this does not traumatize her from swimming in the ocean again. That said, having one shark bite does not mean that there are going to be more, nor does it mean there will be less. While traumatic, it is a minor news story, not a reason to panic and be outraged that there weren't signs and more publicity telling people there are sharks in the water. The town and other officials did their job, and they recognize that publicizing the shark bite will not prevent the next one, will not prevent people from going in the water and basically serves very little purpose.
