Shark leaps out of water and bites parasailer

A tandem parasailer hovering just above the water surface of the Red Sea sustained injuries when a shark leaped out of the water and bit his foot in a bizarre attack in the Gulf of Aqaba.

The incident occurred last Friday off the Jordanian port city of Aqaba, as reported by the Daily Mail and The U.S. Sun.

The 37-year-old Jordan man, who wasn’t identified, was taken to Prince Hashem Military Hospital where he underwent an operation on his right foot. He lost part of the back of his foot and suffered severed tendons, torn muscles and broken bones. He was listed as stable.

The Sun tweeted video of the shark attack.

“The shark attack garnered a lot of media attention; truthfully, it scared a lot of people, but this is something that can take place anywhere,” Mohammad Qatawneh of the Aqaba International Diver Center told the Jordan News, according to the Daily Mail.

“I’ve been diving for 20 years and this is the first time I’ve heard of a shark attack.”

********************************

Soon on the Discovery Channel, shark experts claim parasailers mimic flying fish.
