A nine-year-old child was bitten on the arm by a shark Thursday, November 14 in Moorea, reports La Dépêche de Tahiti.

According to the daily, the accident took place inside the lagoonarium, a paying tourist site allowing visitors to observe hundreds of fish.

Our colleagues report the testimony of a tourist denouncing a feeding session that would have gone wrong. The slightly injured child was transported to Taaone hospital and an investigation was opened.

This accident comes three weeks after a dramatic attack in the open water off sister island. A tourist operating in snorkeling had been very seriously injured in the upper limbs and chest.
