Shark's Snack

ECUADOR | Thursday, 25 February 2010 | Views [1963]

I was in Tortuga Bay in the Galapagos Islands. While out surfing, I was bitten by a shark. I was able to walk to the nearby medical center where I got ten stitches to close the wound and a course of antibiotics.

How WN Helped

They paid for the treatment and medications I received in the Galapagos.

PAID £46.85
