Shark bites surfer's leg in Brazil

SAO PAULO (AP) — Officials say a shark has attacked a 21-year-old man who was surfing off the coast of northeastern Brazil.

The spokesman for the Pernambuco state fire department says the shark took a deep bite from the right thigh of Malisson Lima on Wednesday morning.

Spokesman Valdy Oliveira says the surfer's injury was not life-threatening and he does not risk losing his leg.

Oliveira says Lima was probably attacked by a bull or tiger shark, which are common in the area.

The attack occurred in an area that is off-limits to swimmers and surfers because of the danger of shark attacks

Oliveira says 20 people have been killed in the 53 shark attacks registered in Pernambuco state since 1992.

Durou cerca de 1h30 a cirurgia do surfista Marlison Danilo Lima de França, de 21 anos, que foi atacado por um tubarão na manhã desta quarta-feira (29) no Pina, Zona Sul do Recife. No procedimento, realizado no Hospital da Restauração, foi feita a recuperação dos tecidos, vasos sanguíneos, nervos e estrutura óssea atingidos pela mordida. Nas próximas 24 horas Marlison ficará em observação, mas não corre risco de morte. Por conta da possibilidade de infecção e outras complicações, o surfista tomará uma série de medicamentos, entre eles, antibióticos.

Segundo o cirurgião vascular Joaquim Varela, Marlison teve sorte, pois a maior parte da mordida, que é bastante profunda, se deu no lado externo na coxa. Caso fosse na parte interna, as complicações seriam maiores, uma vez que há mais vasos sanguíneos no local. Ainda segundo o médico, ainda é cedo para saber se o jovem terá a sensibilidade ou a mobilidade do membro comprometidas.

Joaquim Varela conta também que este é o terceiro caso de ataque de tubarão que ele atende e que, analisando a dimensão e a profundidade da mordida, Marlison provavelmente foi mordido por um animal de grande porte. Na foto acima, tirada por um enfermeiro do Hospital da Restauração e compartilhada com familiares de um paciente da unidade, é possível observar os ferimentos sofridos pelo surfista.
