May 25, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A shark injured a 49-year-old American surfer off the Pacific coast of Mexico, the third attack in a month. The Mexican navy warned people about sharks off Zihuatanejo, a resort northwest of Acapulco, according to a navy official.

A day earlier, a 21-year-old Mexican surfer was killed by a shark off a nearby beach. The two attacks came a month after a shark killed a San Francisco man surfing in the area.
