This is the shocking moment a shark leapt out of the water and bit off part of a man’s foot as he parasailed in the Red Sea.

The footage which was shot on Friday, shows the tandem parasailer, a 37-year-old Jordanian man, hovering above the water in Aqaba when the shark suddenly emerges and bites him on the leg.

The man lost part of the back of his foot in the attack which also severed tendons, tore muscles and broke several bones.

He was taken to the Prince Hashem Military Hospital, in the port city, where he had an operation on his right foot. His condition was described as stable.
Mohammad Qatawneh from the Aqaba International Dive Centre told local media that although shocking, attacks by sharks in the Gulf of Aqaba are rare.

He told Jordan News: ‘The shark attack garnered a lot of media attention. Truthfully, it scared a lot of people, but this is something that can take place anywhere.

‘In Karak, for example, there are snakes and scorpions, but in the end, they’re not dangerous enough to scare people away
I’ve been diving for 20 years and this is the first time I’ve heard of a shark attack.’

He added: ‘There are many types of sharks. We have reef sharks, guitar sharks, and many other types but none are dangerous.’

Mohammed Khalil Al Zabada of the College of Marine Sciences told Gulf News: ‘Sharks are found in all the seas of the world, and in the Red Sea there are many types of sharks, but their presence in the Aqaba region is very rare.’

He said sharks are not normally found in shallow water off the Jordanian coast.
Nayef Al Bakhit of the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority said an investigation into the incident has been launched.

He added: ‘The committee will issue a detailed statement about what happened as soon as they complete the investigation.’

Several other people have been attacked in the Red Sea by sharks within the past year, although those incidents were further south, off the Egyptian coast.

In October 2020, a 12-year-old Ukrainian boy and an Egyptian tour guide were attacked by a shark at the Ras Mohammed national park in Sharm El-Sheikh.

The boy lost an arm while the guide had a leg amputated when they were savaged by an Oceanic Whitetip shark.

Two months later a 42-year-old German woman was bitten by a whitetip shark near Marsa Alam in Egypt.

  1. The Gulf of Aqaba is the location the the Israelites crossed the red sea when G_ _ parted the waters. Very interesting.

  2. People suck. They have their phones out, videoing everything. Then, when something happens, they yank their phone away from the action. Idiots. Or videots.

  3. I don’t have a huge fear of sharks,knowing that sharks only kill about nine people’s year (worldwide i think) , yes we kill around a hundred thousand to a million or more sharks a year. AYEAR. Sharks are important to our ecosystem, without them, the world would be in shambles, sharks don’t even like the taste of humans, they normally only bite, and then spit you bad out, they are either starving and eat whatever they can get, or they think you’re a turtle and spit you back out, that’s why most shark attacks aren’t fatal.

    Please spread this message, because if we don’t save the sharks, we can’t save the world.
