With his left leg tightly wrapped in white bandages, a South Florida man who was bitten by a shark in the Bahamas last month was discharged from a Miami hospital.

Salvador Ruiz, 50, was snorkeling at Waderick Wells Cay in the Bahamas on June 17 when a six-foot reef shark attacked him, WTVJ-Ch. 6 reported.

There was “a bite and a lot of pain,” the charter captain and fishing guide told the NBC station.

Ruiz was flown to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center in Miami where he’s had five surgeries, according to the report, which didn’t identify the city where Ruiz lives. To help pay his medical bills and costs of living, his friends set up a GoFundMe Page where they posted photos of Ruiz and his wound during his weeks-long stay in the hospital.

He left the hospital Sunday with the help of a walker, but he will require more surgeries, including skin grafts and rehabilitation, according to his friends.

Ruiz’s shark attack was among several that have happened to people in the Bahamas and elsewhere in recent months.

On July 4, a Fort Lauderdale man was bitten by a shark in the Bahamas, according to WPLG-Ch. 10, citing information from the Royal Bahamas Police Force. The station reported that a 32-year-old man and two other Americans were aboard a 41-foot Bahama craft boat on Great Guana Cay.

That bite followed another incident in the Bahamas in June, when a 21-year-old woman was fatally attacked by three sharks as she snorkeled near Rose Island.

And in March, a shark bite was suspected after something grabbed an 11-year-old boy’s leg off Stuart Beach in Martin County.
