Russian Surfing Championships: Surfers to be protected from shark attacks


Surfers to be protected from shark attacks

Russia`s Emergency Situations Ministry says it will protect surfers from sharks during the final round of the Russian Surfing Championships in the Far Eastern Primorsk region on August 29th.

Two shark attacks were reported in the area last week.

The victim of the first attack was a 25-year-old man, he lost his forearms after being mauled by a shark. A 16-year-old boy suffered serious injuries to his leg during the second attack which took place a day later.

Swimming was banned in the area, which is now patrolled by rescue teams day and night.

Experts say sharks may have approached the area in search for food and should leave Primorye in September, when the temperature of water will be lower.
