Two Shark Attacks Perplex Russians
There hasn't been a single recorded shark attack in Primorsky Krai--a region in far East Russia along the Sea of Japan--until now. Denis Udovenko, 25, was attacked on Wednesday, followed by Valery Sidorovich, 16, on Thursday. Both survived, but Udovenko lost both arms below the elbows. Authorities have temporarily banned swimming at several nearby beaches.
