Surfer bitten by shark in Reunion France

Shark_signVincent Rintz, a 51 year old surfer was bitten on the calf and right wrist on Tuesday July 22 in Saint-Leu Reuninon France.  If I understand the translation correctly, the incident occurred  in a no swimming and boating zone in bad weather.    The surfer is OK and was able to return to the beach under his own power. He was then taken to a local hospital for treatment.
