Michael Cohen, a Brit studying in Cape town, South Africa, went for a swim on his regular beach the other day. Despite the beach being closed due to 3 shark sightings, Michael went for a dip anyway. So a local shark took part of his leg. There's a lot more to this story including Michael saying that if a shark takes him it's his, not the shark's fault, well yeah I would say so. Also there was a guardian seal who helped the rescuers pull Michael from the ocean to save his life, so you might want to read the whole story, and see more pic here.
