Freek Vonk, who last week was bitten by a shark, comes this weekend to the Netherlands.

“I’m back in control for the surgeon and the sutures look good”, let Freek Thursday to his followers on Instagram know. “No sign of infection. So no one have to worry.”

Monday may be ‘100+’ sutures out. “There are volunteers who do that for me want to do?” quipped the biologist. “Fortunately, I am not, however, so attached to Miami and I come this weekend back home.”

A Caribbean reef shark bite tv-biologist last week in his rechterbovenarm. The biologist, who in the Bahamas made recordings for his new program Freek for the sharks, was a trauma helicopter to a hospital in Miami.


There followed a three-hour surgery. Monday showed Freek know still no feeling in the skin of his forearm. “But nerves can regenerate, so this sense would be able to come back.”
