The other attack occurred in the neighboring town of Brookhaven, in the waters off Sailors Haven Beach, an Islip spokesman said.
Police confirmed that the injuries are bites, but are still investigating whether a shark was responsible.

What appeared to be a shark's tooth was extracted from the boy's leg and was be analyzed to determine the species he encountered while boogie-boarding at Atlantique Beach in the town of Islip, 5o miles (80km) east of Manhattan, officials said. The boy, who was attending a day camp at the time, walked on and off the police boat that took him to the hospital. "I think it was a shark attack", he said at a press conference. The 12-year-old girl had several deep gashes to one of their legs. "We were at the beach and there wasn't a tiger or anything", she said, laughing. "When I first got bit, I couldn't feel it, so it didn't hurt that bad".
Fire Island beaches were closed afterward until further notice, National Park Service spokeswoman Elizabeth Rogers said. He doubted either of Wednesday's attacks was by a shark that large. One shark expert said that bites were definitely from a shark.
Only about ten cases of shark bites on people have ever been documented in NY state, the last one in 1948, Mr Levine said. The girl was able to walk to shore with help from her caregiver and was treated at a hospital. The head lifeguard said the lifeguards and EMT assumed it was a small shark when they found the tooth lodged in the boy's wound. The attacks come just days before the July 22 start of Discovery Channel's annual "Shark Week" programming marathon, now in its 30th year.
