Shark Attacks Fish Pond Worker

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

A shark attacked a fish pond worker at the port city of Ashdod Sunday and bit off part of his hand before he was rescued and rushed to a hospital in Tel Aviv., where his is recovering from moderate wounds.

The man, described to be in his late 20s, was working in fish cages when the shark attacked, a relatively rare occurrence in Israel.

Last year, two fishermen were surprised when they caught a shark weighing more than 100 pounds. In April 2005, two sharks were captured in two separate incidents off the coast of Ashkelon, approximately five miles south of Ashdod.
