The fisherman's state of health improves
Hospitalized at the Médipôle since Sunday, the state of health of the young Kito is improving. " This mobilization is also to tell him that we are with him, " says Amy Hnagéjé, his uncle. The diver was bitten twice by a bulldog shark. “The last I heard, he was waking up. He has opened his eyes but it is difficult for him to put into words what happened on Sunday. It will take time, we know, but we are still hopeful, ”he continues.
