Nassau (BAHAMAS) - 16-08-2001

A shark bit the leg of an American man who was snorkeling with his wife near the island of Grand Bahama, hospital officials said. The shark attack Thursday was the second this month on the island, about 120 miles northwest of Nassau, the capital on the main island.

The man was being treated for injuries to his left leg at Rand Memorial Hospital, said Dr. Jerold Forbes. He would not say whether the injuries were life threatening, adding only that the man's leg was not severed. The hospital did not release the name of the couple involved. Forbes would not provide further details on the attack.

Freeport (BAHAMAS) - 04-08-2001

Krishna Thompson, a 36-year-old Wall Street banker, was in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami on Monday morning, said spokeswoman Victoria Zambrano.

"He was just swimming off the beach when something, a shark, grabbed his leg and started pulling him down," Ave Maria Thompson, Thompson's wife, told The Miami Herald for Monday editions. "He kept punching and punching. He has cuts on his hands because of that."

The Thompsons had been celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary during a vacation to Freeport, Grand Bahama. On Saturday, Krishna Thompson went alone into the water.

After struggling with the shark, Mrs. Thompso receive blood transfusions. He was transferred Saturday to Jackson's Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, where surgeons amputated his leg, just above the knee.

Mrs. Thompson said that though her husband seems alert, doctors told her there was a possibility of brain damage and other complications due to the loss of blood.
