A British man has had a leg bitten off and lost the other below the knee in a shark attack in Cape Town.
The BBC said the 42-year-old, who is believed to be a British expatriate living in South Africa, was swimming at Fish Hoek Beach, even though the area had been closed after a shark sighting.
He was rescued from the water by a bystander and air-lifted to hospital, where he is said to be in a critical condition.
