In China, a young woman ended up with serious injuries to her forehead, jaw and scalp when attacked by a tiger shark that lives in the pond where the lesson was taught.

A woman was left with numerous head injuries when she was bitten by a shark while taking a diving class in China, the ETtoday News Cloud website reported Monday.

The young woman – identified by local media as Nana – was attending a lesson on the diving course offered by Dalian Laohutan Ocean Park, located in Liaoning province, when she was bitten by a tiger shark that lives inside the pond where the class is taught, leaving serious wounds on the face and other parts of her head.

Immediately after the attack of the shark, the woman was rushed to an emergency hospital and underwent a four-hour operation, in which she received more than 70 stitches to close the bites she received on her forehead, jaw and scalp.

Fortunately, after the surgery, Nana is out of danger, although under close observation.

On the other hand, it is known that the aquatic club is willing to pay the costs of treatment and is negotiating compensation for the affected. According to the personnel of the place, the submarine activities that are taught there reproduce the dangers that can be faced at sea.

She had purchased the Level 1 diving lesson for 3,600 yuan (£410) from a local diving club, according to the report. 

A text purportedly from the manager of the club said he would cover all the expenses of Nana’s surgery and any other necessary cosmetic operations in the future, plus a diving theory lesson.

She remains under observation in hospital and is negotiating compensation with the club, the report said. 

The sand tiger shark dwell in the waters of Japan, Australia, South Africa, the Mediterranean and the east coasts of North and South America and is a cousin of the great white shark.

While many net users offered their sympathy to the woman, others questioned why were people allowed to swim in a tank full of sharks. 

‘The park should also be responsible for this. If the shark attacked her further, she would have died,’ one person said on Chinese microblogging site Weibo.

‘Luckily she wasn’t hurt elsewhere. What a risk!’ another user said.

‘What kind of activity is this? Why would they let her in with the sharks without proper protection?’ one person commented.

UNPROVOKED SHARK ATTACKS

Do you Understand what an Unprovoked Shark Attack is?

This information was assembled trying to explain to my fellow shark attacks survivors why their shark attacks were not being listed or counted in any statistics?

Most of the time in the marine biological circle “Unprovoked Shark Attacks” are defined as incidents where an attack on a live human occurs in the shark’s natural habitat with no human provocation of the shark.

 

At our new sister site we have explained the two types of shark attacks.

First the unprovoked shark attacks used for the biological study of certain shark attacks.

Second all the shark attacks that are of no use for the biological study of sharks, but extremely important for ocean users.

As shark attack survivors we know you need to know about any sharky activity when entering the oceans.

11-year-old bitten by shark at Stuart Beach, Florida

Florida shark bite wound

An 11-year-old Iowa boy was bitten by a shark March 12 while boogie boarding off Stuart Beach, Stuart, Fla.

Kael Dewey and his mother Jessica were enjoying spring break and hitting the waves, when Jessica decided it was time to head in around 2 p.m.

As the two were surfing back to shore Jessica heard her son scream. Kael yelled that he was bitten by something “really, really bad.” He pulled his injured foot out of the water and put it on top of his board to keep as much blood as possible out of the water.

“I’m very proud of him. He said he remembers from watching shows on TV that sharks can trace blood,” Jessica told KWAY Radio.

However, the sight of the injuries sent his mother into emergency mode. “I saw blood just running down his feet, his foot and his leg. And I was just screaming ‘get to shore, get to shore,’ and I was trying to swim over to him.”

Mother and son were about 15 feet from the beach where several people watched the incident unfold and headed in to help.

The beach patrol called an ambulance and the pair were taken to the hospital.

Both the bottom and the top of the Kael’s foot had several lacerations which required stitches.

“They [doctors] said that with shark bites they leave the stitches pretty loose because there’s a high chance of getting infection, and they like to let it ooze out. He got about 16 stitches. They said he would have got 30 or more if it would have been a regular cut,” Jessica said.

Kael is taking pain meds and antibiotics and will be seeing a pediatrist today.

Doctors said the bite was likely from a 2- to 5-foot long spinner shark which bit once and released.

The family will spend the rest of spring break going to museums and, hopefully, watch the St. Louis Cardinals’ spring training games.

Many shark species migrate through Florida’s water each year. Typically, they move northward and inshore during the spring and summer and then offshore for fall and winter.
