Shark bites man in Richards bay

Sapa | 21 May, 2011 16:320 Comments

A man has died of his injuries after being attacked by a shark at Cape Vidal in KwaZulu-Natal on Saturday, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) said.

Spokesman Craig Lambinon said the man had been spearfishing with a group of people at Cape Vidal, 150 kilometers north of Richards Bay, when he was attacked around midday.

He was taken ashore by other fishermen and on-scene medical personnel attended to him until the KZN-EMRS Red Cross AMS helicopter and private ambulance services arrived.

The man suffered lacerations to his thigh and was declared dead on-scene after all efforts to resuscitate him were exhausted.
