A fisherman died after a hungry shark nibbled on his body off the coastal town of Paoay in Ilocos Norte, Thursday afternoon.

Fisherman killed in shark attack

PAOAY, Ilocos Norte -- A fisherman died after a shark allegedly attacked him while he and his son were at the high seas off Paoay town.

Paoay Police Chief Dexter Corpus said the victim Joel Bacud, 38, and his son Louie sailed in the sea early Thursday morning and the shark attack could have happened between 10 to 11 a.m.

Louie narrated that his father dived into the water to put in place their fishing nets.

His father was then climbing back into their motorized banca carrying a fish dripping with blood when the shark allegedly attacked him from the back.

According to Louie, he immediately pulled his father back into their motorized banca and raced back to the shore. The elder Bacud, whose back was ripped off and eaten by the shark, was already dead.

It was the first time a shark attack was reported here. (LCMY/Sunnex)

Ilocos fisher killed in shark attack
By Artemio Dumlao Updated November 09, 2008 12:00 AM

BAGUIO CITY – A 39-year-old fisherman from the fishing village of Callaguip, Paoay town in Ilocos Norte was attacked and killed by a shark before noon Thursday.

Local fisherman Joel Bacud who was with his 17-year-old son Louie, some three hours away at high waters off the South China Sea along the northern town coast went fishing aboard their motorized banca when the elder Bacud dived in deep water to check on their fishing net.

A shark suddenly sprung and attacked the elder Bacud, said Paoay town police chief Senior Inspector Dexter Corpuz in a telephone interview. 

It was not known if Bacud had a wound because sharks only attack after smelling blood.

When retrieved from the waters Thursday noontime, Bacud was already lifeless. 

The father and son went fishing around 5 a.m. and the attack happened around 10 to 11 a.m.

The attack happened about three hours away by travel from the shoreline, Bacud said.

The victim’s son Louie, 17, who was unhurt, brought his father’s body along the shoreline using their motorized banca.

He said that the elder Bacud jumped off from the motorized banca with some bloodied fish catch which apparently drew the shark’s attention.

The shark gnawed Bacud’s back, particularly at the right side, his right arm  had a big wound while his upper torso had nine scratches of the shark’s teeth.

It was the first time that such shark attack happened at the high seas here, Bacud said. – Eva Visperas
