Tahiti, July 29, 2020 - A young child was bitten in the leg by a shark on Monday in Tikehau, revealed our colleagues from the Tahiti Dispatch in their Tuesday edition. The child had to be fled to the Taaone hospital, his life would not be in danger.

A four-year-old child was bitten by a shark, certainly a juvenile black tip shark, on Monday on Tikehau atoll. According to our colleagues, the attack would have occurred while the child was swimming in the lagoon with his mother in a meter of water approximately fifteen meters from their catamaran. The bathers would certainly have approached a nursery area and the young shark would have wanted to mark its territory. This kind of attack is extremely rare.
Evasanned at the CHPF, the child was operated and his life would not be in danger.
