Photos: Survivor of a shark attack in Cape Town

British swimmer Michael Cohen, 42, survives a shark attack off the coast of Clovelly Beach in Fish Hoek thanks to two men who risked their own lives to rescue him from the water.

Cohen suffered the loss of his right leg and left foot. His right leg was amputated above the knee. Michael’s left foot and ankle were treated for infection and “stabilised”. Michael – who is living in South Africa – was said to be in a stable condition now.
