New footage has emerged showing the moments after a 10-year-old boy was bitten on the leg by a shark while swimming in a shark tank at a Bahamas resort.

The video shows the aftermath of the incident that happened while the youngster was participating in an event at the Atlantis Paradise Island resort on January 15.

Concerned onlookers can be heard discussing what happened inside the tank as the water in the bend begins to turn red due to the blood.

As the boy tries to make his way to safety, sharks can be seen circling the tank in a frenzy.

Blue Adventures by Stuart Cove, the group that runs the shark diving program for the resort, said the guest was in the water with a ‘dive instructor and dive guide’.

The boy was immediately taken to a hospital and was in a serious but stable condition. He was taken from the hospital to Maryland on January 17 for continued care.

A source told TMZ that the boy climbed into the tank with a chaperone as part of the shark experience at the hotel.

The boy went to the floor of the tank with the chaperone while also wearing a large white helmet and a heavy oxygen tank.

Two reef sharks began to aggressively swim around him, before one of them plucked at his legs.

The outlet reported that this caused the young boy to lose his footing and trip over the shark, which struck back by sinking its teeth into his leg.

Other footage has also emerged showing staff and a woman standing at one corner of the tank while a man is heard screaming as the incident happened.

The boy is then seen being picked up from the water by staff as the woman shooting the video is heard saying: ‘He bit, he was bitten by a shark, Mum’.

A woman is also heard crying hysterically in the background while another man calls for help.

In a statement, the organizers said: ‘We have launched a thorough internal investigation and are fully cooperating with the authorities.

“Incidents like this involving interactions with marine life, even with the species of sharks included in this experience, are rare and never acceptable.”

Their statement continued: ‘The experience will remain closed during the company’s investigation ‘and while we review the findings.’

The ‘thrilling’ expedition is part of the Mayan temple area of ​​the resort’s Aquaventure zone.

Guests are made to wear special helmets to breathe underwater so they can get up close and personal with nurse and reef sharks.

The resort’s website informed guests that they need no swimming experience to participate and must be at least 10 years old, according to People.

The Shark Tank Expedition page is no longer available on the website.
