Swansea Fisherman Bitten By Shark In Falmouth
The man was bitten by the shark as he reeled it in while fishing off of Cape Cod.
According to The Boston Globe, the 34-year-old man from Swansea was fishing on Menauhant Beach late Thursday night when the incident happened.
Police say he was reeling in a brown shark and as he tried to unhook it to snap a photo with his catch, the shark bit his right foot.
Rescuers were called to the scene just before 11:30 p.m. and they took the fisherman to Falmouth Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The shark was reportedly six-feet-long and was released back to the ocean after the bite.
