Edinburgh schoolboy attacked by Shark in Bahamas.

An Edinburgh schoolboy is recovering after being attacked by a Shark in a harbour on Bimini Island in the Bahamas on Thursday 5 April 2018. Shane McConnell, 12, was visiting the island with his family when he slipped and fell into the water close to the animal, believed to have been a Bull Shark, Carcharhinus leucas, about two metres in length, which bit him once on the feet before retreating. McConnell was able to pull himself out of the water using a ladder on the side of the harbour, and received treatment in a local hospital. It is thought that his injuries were minimised by the tough neoprene diving shoes he was wearing, though these did not survive the attack.

Despite their fearsome reputation, attacks by Sharks are relatively rare. Most attacks on Humans by Sharks are thought to be mistakes, made by species that feed principally on Marine Mammals (which we superficially resemble when we enter the water), gaining the majority of their nutrition from the thick adipose (fat) layers of these animals (which we lack). Due to this, when Sharks do attack Humans these attacks are often broken off without the victim being consumed. Such attacks frequently result in severe injuries, but are seldom immediately fatal, with victims likely to survive if they receive immediate medical attention.

Bull Sharks, Carcharhinus leucas, are a form of Requiem Shark, Carcharhinidae, reaching about four metres in length at their largest. They have a reputation for aggressive behaviour, and are one of the species most prone to attacking Humans, though this is not because they are more hostile towards us than other Shark species, but because they inhabit environments where they are more likely to encounter us, favouring shallow inshore waters, and sometimes entering freshwater systems, which most Sharks shun (Bull Sharks have been encountered in the Mississippi River as far inland as southern Illinois). These Sharks are also territorial, and may lash out if they feel their territory is being invaded.
