Fisherman bitten by shark in Mazatlán, Mexico

The video was uploaded by ‘LíneaDirectaPortal LD’ on 10. March 2015.

At approximately 10am, emergency services received a report from a boat 40 nautical miles off shore that one of the fishermen had been bitten by a shark and needed to be transported to a medical facility. The water rescue squad of the municipal police in coordination with Cruz Roja medics responded, meeting the boat six miles from shore where medics attended to the fisherman, later transporting him to a medical facility. The fishermen told reporters they had captured a 40 kilogram shark (apparently misidentified as a ‘white shark’) which bit one of them on the hand ( from Noroeste via mazatlan-real-estate-blog ).
