INJURED — 27 August 2011 — Slavyanka Bay, Primorsky Territory, Russian far east – wader attacked

From a rather sketchy report from ITAR-TASS news agency it appears a third person has been attacked by a shark in the same territory in the Russian far east in the space of 10 days. According to the report, Pavel Nechayev, 26, was bitten on the shoulder (the same report also quotes a source as saying he received bites on the forearm) by a shark while wading in knee deep water and picking up star fishes.

The brief report says the shark jumped out of the water and bit him on the shoulder.

However, Itar-Tass quotes a source at the Khasan district hospital:

“He received few forearm bites. His life is out of danger. He was prescribed with outpatient treatment and was permitted to go home.”

The incident happened on Saturday morning 27 August 2011 in Slavyanka Bay in the Khasan district, Primorsky Territory, Russian far east

No other details were reported.

The attack follows two attacks on 17 and 18 of August in the same region, reported on SharkAttackMonitor.
