GIZO, Solomon Islands (19 Sep 2007) -- An Australian man was airlifted to hospital and underwent emergency surgery for leg wounds after a shark attacked him.
Corey Howell, who has been living in the Solomon Islands for seven years, was spearfishing when a shark bit him three times severely injuring his left thigh.
Authorities said that fish Howell caught probably attracted the shark.
Howell was airlifted to National Referral Hospital in Honiara where he underwent surgery to clean and patch up a "rugged wound"...
