Johann foi atacado enquanto surfava em Atlântida

Em entrevista por telefone, de Rio Grande, no Rio Grande do Sul, o biólogo marinho Santiago Montealegre, especialista em tubarões da Fundação Universidade Rio Grande, disse que o animal que feriu um surfista no sábado, em Atlântida, no Litoral Norte do Estado, pode ser um tubarão-martelo.

O analista de sistemas Andrei Johann, de Porto Alegre, foi ferido no pé enquanto surfava na praia de Atlântida. Segundo Montealegre, pelas características do ataque e da mordida, Johann pode ter sido atacado por um tubarão-martelo, espécie que se reproduz nessa época no litoral gaúcho.

O surfista, de 29 anos, relatou o momento do ataque.

— Senti um "mordidão" no pé que anestesiou o meu pé. Me assustei e subi para a prancha. Me deitei e ergui os pés — contou.

Após sangrar bastante, Johann foi socorrido por surfistas e banhistas e levado para o hospital de Capão da Canoa onde levou mais de 20 pontos.
