Shark attacks teen at Pedro Cays

A teenage boy was bitten by a shark on the Pedro Cays yesterday.

It is reported that the 18-year-old, who is from Spanish Town, in St Catherine, was bitten on the knee and has been hospitalised in serious but stable condition.

Details of the shark-attack were not available up to news time, but the Constabulary Communications Network (CCN) says it happened shortly after 3 o’clock while the teenager was in a boat.

The CCN says the Black River Police is investigating the incident and will provide a full report shortly.
