Despite the rarity of attacks in The Bahamas, the country recorded three shark biting incidents within two days between Exuma and Abaco on July 28 and 29.

On Sunday, 28th July, at about 11:15 am, a 50 year-old U.S. visitor reported that while on a diving expedition, he was bitten on the rear lower extremities by a shark just east of a local Cay near Grand Cay, causing serious injuries; He got medical treatment with the assistance of a friend – a 57 year-old local man.

He was treated by the local medical team at Grand Cay and then airlifted to a hospital in West Palm Beach for further medical treatment.
