Aucune attaque de requin n'avait jusqu'alors été enregistrée au spot de Grand Fond à Saint-Gilles. Jusqu'à ce week-end... Car samedi, un surfeur a été gravement blessé près de cette plage de la côte ouest de l'île de la Réunion.

L'accident s'est produit à 18 heures au lieu dit des Trois-Roches, à Saint-Gilles, zone balnéaire et touristique de l'île. La victime, âgée de 32 ans, serait un touriste métropolitain, arrivé le matin dans l'île en compagnie de son épouse, selon des témoins sur place.

"Les requins sont imprévisibles"

Plusieurs surfeurs se trouvaient dans l'eau lorsqu'ils ont entendu l'homme crier. La victime a eu la jambe gauche arrachée à hauteur du genou. Il était conscient lorsqu'il a été évacué par les pompiers vers le centre hospitalier Gabriel Martin de Saint-Paul. Ses jours ne sont pas en danger mais il devra rester hospitalisé une dizaine de jours, a précisé l'hôpital.

Rémy Tézier, un réalisateur réunionnais de films sous-marins qui se trouvait sur place au moment du drame, a estimé que l'accident relevait de la "malchance". "L'eau était claire, la vague était belle (...) Les requins sont imprévisibles et peuvent attaquer à n'importe quel endroit. Aucune attaque de requin n'avait été observée dans cette zone", a-t-il dit.

Le drame s'est produit une heure avant le coucher du soleil, horaire habituellement propice pour les attaques de requins qui se sont toujours déroulées au lever du jour au coucher du soleil, selon les observations faites par l'Observatoire marin de la Réunion. Une trentaine d'attaques de requins ont été recensées dans l'île depuis 1972 dont 17 ont été mortelles. La dernière remontait à mars 2010 à Saint-Benoît où la victime - là aussi, un surfeur - s'en était sortie avec des égratignures.

19, February, Grand Fond, Eric Dargent , a 34 year old surfer was attacked by a shark. A few weeks after the accident, the tourist from Marseille said: "I was in the water for about two hours. I decided to join the beach. I have not seen, nor wing, nor even a movement around my board. Suddenly, a shark attacked me from below and grabbed my leg. I struggled. I hit him. He then tried to pull me to the bottom. I resisted. He let go. I felt that there was more tension. " The young man has been tearing the leg. Alerted by another surfer, Laurent, 33, jumped into the water to rescue Eric : "I thought he was stuck between coral heads. I went. When I pulled up beside him, I saw the wound and blood ... That I understand. I say this to another bodyboarder to give me his lycra and I do everything on a tourniquet at the groin. We're still in the water on the barrier. Then we put it on the boogie to bring him back as soon as possible. When I do the withers, he said: "It's a shark, it bit me, I have more leg, I tapped him on the mouth." And then he loses more or less knowledge on the return. I said, 'No, we must take to the beach. " But many times, it feels to leave. "Eh! No, you would like, you want "... It was really hard."

I have pain, certain movements are impossible to me and it happened to me many times from falling. "He continues:" I had to relearn to walk. At first I could not stand my prosthesis more than ten minutes. I walked with crutches.
