Saved by the whiskers: Shark attacks woman in Delta

by Reuben Daba

Mrs. Torughene-Ere Aboh, a 38-year-old woman in Delta State, was lucky to escape death yesterday, when a shark attacked her at Forcados River in Oboro Community, Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State.

According to a report: The woman, a mother of five, who was taking her bath in the overflowing river, had gone for a three-day fasting programme in a church in the community, when she was attacked by the shark in the river.

Narrating her ordeal, Mrs Aboh, said: “Shortly after I started bathing, I felt a sharp cut on my right leg and I screamed for help. The screaming drew the attention of my brethren who were also in the river and they came to my rescue.

“I was immediately taken to a nearby patent medicine shop, where I was given 12 stitches before I was later taken by my husband, to a private clinic at Bomadi, for proper medical treatment.”
