Canary Islands Shark attack on 6 year old boy playing in the water then attacked by shark at the north Island Beach of Famara Canary Islands

Child bitten by shark off Canary Island.

Last month, a 6-year-old child was bitten by a shark while vacationing on Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands off the coast of West Africa administered by Spain.

The unidentified child was playing in the water off the island on the north Island Beach of Famara May 19.

While playing in the water, he encountered an angel shark and was bitten on the right foot. It is possible he stepped on the shark, which are known to hide in the sand. He was taken to the Molina Orosa Hospital where he received 20 stitches.

Several rumors of other shark bites have been reported in the area over the past month, but nothing that has been confirmed at this point.
