INJURED – 2 October 2005 – Grand Cay, Bahamas – diver attacked

Nixon Pierre, 35, was diving for conch with companion Oliver Russell about one mile north of Grand Cay in the Bahamas when he was attacked by a large shark which bit him on the right side of his face.

The report was published on Monday 3 October and only refers to the incident as having taken place at the “weekend” – either 1 or 2 October.

The two men had been fishing and diving from their 17-foot Freeport Skiff.

Russell helped his injured friend back into the boat and rushed him back to Grand Cay where he received emergency medical treatment at the Government Clinic before being flown to Freeport’s Rand Hospital where a doctor described his condition as serious but not life threatening.

The species of shark was not reported.
