The incident was reported near Central Mall around 11:00 am on Monday.
Soon the beach was interrupted and police flew over the drone to inspect the water.
On-site EMT provided lifeguards with initial treatment. The lifeguard was referred to a local hospital for further testing and treatment.
The beach began swimming again at 2:05 pm after no sightings were available on the drone’s flight.
Investigations into the nature of bites are ongoing.
NYS Parks said it is not yet clear whether it is a shark or another form of marine life.
