A fisherman from Co To Island District off the northern Vietnamese province of Quang Ninh was bitten by a shark and had his right leg severely injured while diving and fishing in the waters of Bach Long Vi Island District, Hai Phong City, the local border station said on Wednesday.

The Bach Long Vi District border station received a rescue call from Vo Van Tanh, the 27-year-old Co To-based captain of the fishing boat numbered QN-0606 TS from Quang Ninh, at around 11:00 am on Tuesday after a fisherman in his crew was attacked by a shark during a dive northeast of Bach Long Vi.

Eight border guard officers and two medical workers immediately departed from Bach Long Vi to rescue the fisher. 

They reached the QN-0606 TS boat about one and a half hours later.

The victim, 32-year-old Vo Van Dat hailing from Co To, was in a state of shock due to serious blood loss upon their arrival.

His right calf was bruised and his pulse was slow.

The victim was quickly transferred to the rescue ship for heart support and intravenous fluid injections. 

He was then transported to Bach Long Vi Military Medical Center for further emergency treatment.

The patient was treated in time, receiving timely blood loss treatment and blood transfusion, allowing him to overcome the critical stage, according to Dr. Pham Van Hai, director of the medical center.

Dat was then taken to the mainland for continued treatment in better facilities.
