Man escapes Shark jaw
Friday, 04 September 2009
A man from Makira Ulawa province is recovering at the National Referral Hospital after a shark attacked him this week.
The incident happened outside provincial capital Kirakira during a fishing expedition with friends.
A local doctor who wished not to name said the shark bit him when the man jumped to get the fish trapped in their net.
The man fought with the shark to escape its jaw and managed at the end.
But the shark left him with a lot of injuries on his face and neck.
He was taken to Kirakira hospital, but due to its seriousness, doctors airlifted him to Honiara on Tuesday.
Shark attack has become common in Solomon Islands and many locals and foreigners have become victims of this dangerous predator.
