NAVARRE BEACH — Authorities say a woman was hospitalized after being stung by a stingray at Navarre Beach.

The 18-year-old woman suffered a puncture to her foot Tuesday at Navarre Beach.

Santa Rosa County officials say the woman was treated at the scene and then taken to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center.

Authorities didn’t know what she was doing right before the injury.

Officials say stingray attacks aren’t common, but swimmers should be aware of all marine life.
