HENRI BOURCE (1935-1998) Great White Shark ate leg

Meanwhile, to combat phantom pains (itches and aches etc.) in the lost lower half of a leg, Henri learned self hypnosis soon after his ‘accident’ as he called the shark attack.
The effect was, he could explain how the shark bit his leg off and almost turn the incident into humor, sometimes.
So convincing was his attitude to living normal life, without thinking I once criticized him for parking in a disabled parking space.

We three rented a cabin where, at high tide, the sea water was under the floor. That cabin and many others have since disappeared as the western coast of this big sandy island slowly washes away.
The Australian mainland is seen in the distance, across Moreton Bay. To the south out of sight is The Gold Coast – in the opposite direction is Queensland’s capital city, Brisbane.
Two years ago bull shark(s) attacked and killed a swimmer just 50 meters from where Mike is standing.
Our shark diving was around the corner and offshore at a small rocky island 3 km from the holiday village of Point Lookout.
Occasional large tiger sharks are a possibility, attracted by the availability of stingrays and a few manta rays.
