Dutch TV presenter gets bitten by Shark

Mr. Vonk said he was looking for Caribbean reef sharks at the islet of Bimini. It was about friendly sharks that are harmless to people, he says: "But things went wrong. One of the sharks made a mistake and took a big bite from my right upper arm. I knew immediately: this is bad stuff. " The biologist was rushed back to the mainland. With a trauma helicopter Vonk was then flown to the Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami: "After a 3-hour operation, during which I was completely anesthetized, and more than 100 stitches, I can now raise my thumb again."
