Shark attack survivors head to UN - to save sharks
Call Krishna Thompson the ultimate conservationist. Though he lost his leg in a 2001 shark attack, he has become an advocate for the predator's survival.
"We need sharks. They set the balance for the whole ocean," said Thompson, 45, a Wall Street banker originally from Westbury.
Thompson freely admits he was "in their territory" when he was swimming in the Bahamas before the attack.
