In the first attack, on Wednesday, a 25-year-old man lost both his hands and sustained other serious injuries at a beach in Primorsky Krai, the southernmost region of Russia’s Pacific coast.

The man was injured as he tried to rescue his wife, who was first attacked by the shark. On Thursday, a 16-year-old boy was severely bitten on the legs.

Konstantin Shvets, a deputy chief physician at the local hospital, told Russian television that the teenager’s injuries look like "someone had passed a sharpened rake over the legs." Doctors extracted pieces of the shark’s teeth from the wounds in six hours of surgery.
