Social Media Responds to Shark Attacking RUSVM Student

By Kevon Browne

St. Kitts-Nevis (WINN) – The Ross University student bitten by a shark on Saturday is back in the USA and will require further medical attention.  

According to a GoFundMe page set up by one Paige Toussaint, the student who suffered the injury was identified as Brook.

The social media coverage of the incident has sparked robust debate online and continues to be a topic of discussion. 

Popular Facebook blogger Everton Powell updated his followers on the situation on Saturday (Jan. 9):

Sharks have inspired fear and dread in many as news of shark attacks make headlines, aided and abetted by the movie Jaws.

 

 

 

From the comments, people were purporting that the young lady went to help a turtle that was being eaten.

In an invited comment with WINN Director of the Marine Resource Department, Marc Williams mentioned that since in October 2020, sharks were seen in the Cockleshell beach area hunting stingray, three miles away from the area the student was bitten.
