Freeport, Bahamas -
On July 13th Around 12:30pm Basra received a distress call from the vessel Lady Joe that they had a man that had been bitten by a shark. His left arm was almost bitten off. Gary Simmons from BASRA also heard the call and responded immediately. BASRA base then called 911 and requested an ambulance to Port Lucaya. BASRA Base then went mobile to meet the ambulance. The injured Man was stabilized and moved to the awaiting ambulance. The crew reported that they were diving on shark junction with the proper dive flag erected, when a glass-bottom boat, Ocean View, came over them whilst chumming the waters. The glass-bottom boat's crew were yelled at many times that divers were in the water, but to no avail.
