Ibrahim, who is the photographer who was filming the event said:
“We were in the shark bay at Vaavu Atoll diving with nurse sharks.
“We decided to do a free dive trip to shark bay and snorkel inside a group of sharks there.
“There were around ten nurse sharks, from 198-pounds to 220-pounds and over three-metres wide.
“After the shark bite, we thought nothing major about it as it was only a minor injury so we cleaned the wound and continued snorkeling at the same spot again.”
