INJURED – 5 July 2011 – Liberty township, San Onofre, Gulf of Morrosquillo, Colombia – kayaker attacked

Tulio Andrés Amaya Vidal, 17, suffered a severe wound to his right arm and a minor wound to his left hand after being attacked by a shark while kayaking off the beach at Liberty township, San Onofre, Gulf of Morrosquillo, Colombia.

The shark latched onto his right forearm and “in a fierce struggle with the shark” he tried to use his left hand to get the shark to let go of his arm, in the process injuring his left hand. He managed to get back to the beach where relatives took him to a hospital in nearby Sincelejo.

He reportedly lost mobility of his arm and underwent surgery at Clínica Las Peñitas de Sincelejo.

No other details were reported.
