NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — A police spokeswoman in the Bahamas says a New York man is recovering after being bitten by a shark while visiting the island chain.

Inspector Chrislyn Skippings of the Royal Bahamas Police Force says the visitor was fishing on the island of Eleuthera when he was bitten on the left leg. The 50-year-old from Rochester, New York, went to a local clinic on his own and was airlifted to a hospital in the capital of Nassau for treatment. He was listed in stable condition Friday.

The attack occurred on Thursday in the Savannah Sound, where fishermen wade in several feet of water to go bone fishing. The area is known to have bull and tiger sharks, though attacks on humans are rare.
