Video: Victim of Shark Attack Shows Injury and Recovery

WARNING: GRAPHIC. This video was recently posted and shows the graphic foot wound of a shark bite survivor. As best as I can tell using a translator, the attack occurred on 16 December 2010 in Fiji. The victim not only filmed the injury but also the treatment he received and his recovery which includes a happy visit with friends.

He states that following the bite, he had to wait 8 hours for surgery. An infection eventually developed and he attributes the exceptional follow-up care at St. Vincent Hospital in Sydney for his recovery.
