Default Shark attack in Cancun

Wonder if the shark is part of a drug cartel?

Because of the seriousness of the injuries I'll refrain from a humorous remark. though there are a number I could make.

Shark attacks happen all over the world and it is sad when there is a loss of life or severe injury.

I do hope the person will be able to recover and resume an almost normal life after this.

Take care,
Mike

Trip, all along the Fl East coast there are times when it is definitely not safe to go in the water because of the sharks, and they now have a special flag on the beaches that mean sharks. A dive instructor was biten late last week in the Bahamas and flown to Fl for care.
