BEIJING, July 21-- 26-year-old French-Chinese man accidentally swam onto the tooth of a shark whilst scuba-diving in the aquarium at Shanghai Changfeng Park, reports Shanghai Evening News.

Diving in the aquarium with many kinds of oceanic species including sharks is a very popular attraction offered by the park, however, it was the first time that such an accident had happened.

The dangerous scene occurred when the French-Chinese man was trying to ascend to the water surface without the permission of the diving coach. Usually the coach will lead customers to ascend only when there is no shark passing by.

The bump onto the tooth left the man with two small wounds to the right ear and the head. He was pulled out of the water immediately and sent to hospital.

Fortunately, due to the water pressure, he was not bleeding in the aquarium, thus sharks did not attack him or other customers.
