Bikini girl in bloody shark attack
April 16, pm Updated April 16, pm. Pablo de Melo had to have his leg amputated after the shark mauled his limbs while he was swimming in waist-deep water off Piedade beach in Recife, Brazil. Recife is a large city on the eastern tip of Brazil. It is believed that Melo, 34, only survived because two men, who were in the water nearby, risked their own lives by bravely chasing off the beast and hauling Melo out of the water. A team of lifeguards and fire officers carried out first aid before the victim was airlifted to Restoration Hospital for emergency surgery. Doctors reported that the tourist, who was vacationing with his family, underwent a four-hour-long operation.
