Shark Bites Boy on an Aquarium Dive. A shark bit a Maryland boy on his leg during a shark tank dive at the Bahamas Blue Adventures water sports concession at Paradise Island Resort. He was airlifted home on January 15 and was said to be in serious but stable condition. The boy had signed up for a 20-minute "walking with sharks" experience helmet dive with an autonomous air supply. A dive instructor and a dive guide with him provided immediate medical care. Stuart Cove, owner of the concession, told Undercurrent the incident was the first of its kind since the shark tank experience began operating in 2006.
