A young British fisherman has been airlifted to hospital with leg injuries after being bitten by a shark off the coast of Cornwall. The 21-year-old, named as Max Berryman, was bitten by the Porbeagle shark after it was hauled aboard a fishing boat yesterday morning. The crew of the Govenek of Ladram quickly sterilised and dressed his leg wound before asking HM Coastguard for medical assistance.
