Shark bites Panamanian election official off nation's Pacific coast

PANAMA CITY, Panama: An official says a Panamanian judge was bitten by a shark off the Central American nation's Pacific coast.

Electoral Tribunal spokesman Humberto Castillo says electoral court judge Gerardo Solis was bitten on his left calf Sunday near San Carlos beach.

Solis's father, Menalco Solis, told local media Monday his son was filming while sitting on a surfboard when the shark attacked him.

He said the injury was not life-threatening and that the judge had been treated at a local clinic and released.
