When we hear mention of the word “Ibiza” we think of some of the best nightclubs in the world and idyllic sun-kissed beaches.
Yet this past week something fairly unusual happened on one of the island’s most frequented and known beaches: Playa d’en Bossa.
An 82-year old man was reported to have been injured with a 2-inch wound caused by a blue shark, a species of shark that is usually prevalent in the Mediterranean Sea. He was rushed to the Can Misses Hospital for treatment of the deep wound. Fortunately, the man managed to have survived the attack without major injury and was released from the hospital about 4 hours later.
