On April 28th, a 30-year-old German diver had a lucky escape after being harassed by a tiger shark near Manuelita Island, Isla del Cocos, Costa Rica.

Details are slowly in coming, but Avi Klapfer, owner of the MV Argo and the MV Seahunter, has information from those who witnessed events, which happened during a dive from the MV Okeanos Aggressor I. He tells Undercurrent that the diver had separated from his group and was waiting to be picked up at the surface by a panga (skiff). He'd already slipped out of his BC and tank when the tiger shark grabbed it from him. The diver was shaken but unhurt....

If you are grabbed by a tiger, stay as passive as possible. It will probably let you go.
