A shark has killed a Mexican surfer off the Pacific coast.
Local Civil Protection Director Jaime Vazquez Sobreira said 21-year-old Osvaldo Mata Valdovinos was attacked yesterday off Pantla beach in southern Mexico.
Mr Sobreira said the shark bit off the surfer’s left hand and broke one of his legs.
That attack occurred six miles from a beach where shark killed an American surfer last month.
Environmental organisations have demanded that authorities post warning signs about sharks in the area of southern Guerrero state.
