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.

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.

Cape Cod Shark Attack on William Lytton

Shark attack off Cape Cod leaves swimmer with wounds to torso, legs Beachgoers describe harrowing scene after Cape Cod shark attack Longnook Beach in Truro Shark Attack

Swimming will remain off-limits at a popular Cape Cod beach until at least the weekend after a man was attacked Wednesday by a shark in Truro. Cape cod shark attack

Sources tell WCVB a man was bitten by a shark at Longnook Beach in Truro. The beach is on the Atlantic Ocean side

The Cape Cod National Sea Shore identified the man as William Lytton, 61, from Scarsdale, New York.

Assistant Truro Harbormaster Gary Sharpless said the man suffered puncture wounds to his torso and legs. Tufts Medical Center said Thursday that Lytton was in serious condition.

Truro said Thursday that due to shark activity, swimming will remain closed through Friday. If no additional shark sightings or activity is reported on Friday, the beach may reopen to swimming on Saturday.cape cod shark attack

State marine fisheries senior biologist Greg Skomal will try to confirm Thursday if the man’s wounds are consistent with a bite from a great white.

The man told first responders he was standing in the water 30 yards offshore when the shark bit him.

Officials with the Cape Cod National Seashore said the location of the incident was approximately 300 yards south of Longnook Beach in Truro, within the boundary of the Cape Cod National Seashore.

Kerstin Peter Leitner and Molly Tobin found the victim lying alone along the shore of the beach. cape cod shark attack

“He had a large wound in his lower left leg,” Tobin, a graduate from the Boston College School of Nursing said.

“We grabbed all the towels that we could, put them on him to stop the bleeding,” Kerstin Peter Leitner, another Boston College nursing school graduate said.

“Unfortunately, there’s no cellphone service, so someone had to run up to a house to call 911,” Tobin said.

A medical helicopter transported the victim from the scene to Tufts Medical Center in Boston.

Officials closed Longnook Beach to swimming until further notice.

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, which has been doing extensive research on sharks in the region, offered its wishes for a full recovery to the victim of Wednesday’s shark bite.

“Encounters with white sharks in which people suffer injuries are as terrifying as they are rare,” the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy said.

“While we still don’t know all of the details of this particular bite, sharks are not known to target people specifically, and when they do bite people, it’s usually a case of mistaken identity.”

The conservancy said sharks “test the waters” with their teeth, much like humans use their hands. “It’s how they determine if what they encounter is prey or something to avoid.”

Truro was the site of the last shark attack on Cape Cod, in July 2012, when a Colorado man suffered a bite off Ballston Beach.

There have been several shark sightings in the area in recent days.

In the past decade, the Cape Cod region, especially Truro, has seen an increase in its population of gray and harbor seals. The increased seal population has attracted great white sharks, which depend on seals as the staple of their diet.

Shark Kills Czech Tourist in Egypt’s Marsa Alam

A 41-year-old tourist from the Czech Republic was killed by a shark on Friday 3 August, reports local Czech media.

According to Czech Radio, the Foreign Ministry confirmed that a Czech man who was swimming off the coast of Marsa Alam was attacked and killed by a shark.

The man was reportedly holidaying in the popular Red Sea resort town with his wife and children through a travel agency identified as Exim Tours.

A spokesperson for Exim Tours said that the attack was unusual and that the deceased’s family hopes to return to the Czech Republic as soon as possible.

Reports of the attack first emerged on Friday evening, when a part of an unidentified body was located off the coast of a resort in Marsa Alam. It remains unclear where the man was staying and whether he was swimming alone.

According to the Czech Republic’s Foreign Ministry, local Egyptian police are investigating the attack.

This is not the first shark attack in Egypt. Shark attacks in 2015, 2010, 2009, and 2004 have killed a total of three people and injured five others.

Lola Pollina 07-18-2018 New York

12-year-old girl Lola Pollina, who was wading waist-deep near Sailors Haven describing the creature as three or four feet long The Islip seventh-grader and her family were celebrating her mom’s birthday when she had her moment of life imitating “Jaws.”

Girl ‘saw a fin’ in water during a possible shark attack

The 12-year-old girl bitten on the leg during a shark attack off of Fire Island on Wednesday “saw a fin” cutting through the surf during the harrowing ordeal.

“I felt something grab my leg. Then I saw something thrashing around next to me,” said Lola Pollina, who was wading waist-deep near Sailors Haven. “I started screaming for my mom.”

The Islip seventh-grader and her family were celebrating her mom’s birthday when she had her moment of life imitating “Jaws.”

“It was this tannish, orangey-like body, then there was this small fin on top,” said Lola, describing the creature as three or four feet long. “When I got out, my leg was, like, bloody.”

Mom Barbara Pollina, 46, said she first saw a “shadow” circling in the water near her 5-year-old son, Roman — who was wearing a T-shirt picturing an open-mouthed shark — when it changed course and her daughter screamed out.

“I heard her yell, ‘Mommy, mommy, it’s biting me!’ ” said Barbara. “When I saw the blood, I knew [it was a shark.]”

Despite the harrowing run-in, the unflappable pre-teen was all smiles as she left Good Samaritan Medical Center, with antibiotics in her system, a bandage around her right leg — and a new moniker.

“My new nickname is ‘Shark Bait,’ ” she cracked.

Minutes after the first attack, a 13-year-old boy attending a Town of Islip-run camp fell off his boogie board at Atlantique Beach and got a bite of his own.

The teen, who wasn’t identified, stumbled out of the waves, his leg dripping blood.

He was rushed first to a nearby lifeguard tent, where Chief Lifeguard Craig Amarando treated him.

“We figured it was a shark bite right away,” said Amarando.

Lifeguards wrapped the wound, but first responders wanted to re-dress it and get a look for themselves.

“That’s when they confirmed also not only was it a shark bite, but they found one of the teeth still inside the boy,” said Amarando.

The tooth will be examined to determine the species of the culprit, with the National Park Service for now saying only that the bite was “consistent with a large fish.”

Ocean-facing beaches along Fire Island were closed for the rest of the day, said Town of Islip supervisor Angie Carpenter.

Beaches will reopen Thursday.
