Shark attack at Fish Hoek beach
28 September 2011
A young man has been mauled by a shark at Cape Town’s Fish Hoek beach.
One witness says the victim was swimming near Clovelly Corner, where the beach had been closed, while another says the man had been surfing.
A shark spotter had allegedly witnessed the attack before informing the emergency medical services of the incident.
Conflicting reports say his leg was taken off while others have it that his foot was so badly mauled that it will probably have to be amputated.
