Man admitted after shark attack

A MAN is recovering at the National Referral Hospital after being bitten by a shark over the weekend.
The man from Kia in Isabel Province was reportedly being bitten on his thighs by a shark during a diving expedition.
The man is understood to have been on a fishing trip when the incident happened.
Because of the seriousness of the injury sustained the person had to be airlifted by RAMSI yesterday to Honiara and was admitted at NRH last Saturday.
A source from NRH revealed to Solomon Star yesterday that the patient is under medical observations without detailing the seriousness of the incident.
