A 10-year-old boy’s leg is torn off as a result of an attack by a suspected bull shark. Worldwide, swimmers account for 30 percent of attack incidents.

Shark Attack
On May 25, a young boy was swimming with his sister at a restricted section in Noumea, New Caledonia when he was attacked by a shark. The child’s father jumped into the water to try and save his son, but by then the shark had already torn off the boy's leg, and he had also suffered injuries to the abdomen. The current condition of the child is unknown.

New Caledonia is a French overseas territory where shark attacks are quite common. According to witnesses, the shark that attacked the child was likely a bull shark.

Bull Sharks
Bull sharks are common, aggressive, and often live near high-population locations such as tropical shorelines. Along with great white sharks and tiger sharks, bull sharks are one of three shark species most likely to attack humans. As such, many experts find bull sharks to be the most dangerous shark in the world.

Bull sharks are fast predators that will eat anything from fish to dolphins and even other sharks. While humans are often not a part of their menu, they end up attacking humans inadvertently or merely out of curiosity.
