An eight-year-old boy was bitten in the chest by a shark while fishing with his family near Lady Musgrave Island on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, The Independent reported on Tuesday, January 31. He escaped with only a few scratches.

I felt it a little, it hurt in my chest, but that was it“, Manny Alam related to the Australian media Channel 9. In a video published on the social network TikTok, extracted from the phone of the boy’s father, Manny comes out of the water in an aquatic suit, with a coral reef. When he got back on the boat, a shark grabbed him by the chest before releasing him in a second.

Ready to go fishing

Despite this accidental and frightening encounter, the boy said he wasn’t afraid to dive back into the water in search of fish.

In Australia, Ouest-France reports an average of twenty shark attacks each year. Jio reported two deaths in 2021 compared to seven in 2020. But not all of them lead to serious consequences.
