A New Zealand man has accused his wife of breaking her promise to do the washing up for three years if he saved her life after a shark attack.
Liz Rogers made the pact with her husband when she nearly had her leg bitten in half by a shark three years ago at the Fijian island resort of Taveuni.
But John Rogers, who kept his wife alive by placing his fist in the hole in her leg to stop her bleeding to death before taking her to a medical centre, said his wife has not honoured the deal.
“I did a deal with Liz she would do the dishes for three years if I got her out of there. I have to say there were moments when the truth was ignored,” he said.
The Christchurch woman, who had her leg amputated as a result of the attack, says in the Otago Daily Times that she has no fear of sharks, calling them “amazing creatures”.
She has since made a good recovery, with the help of an artificial leg, and now plays 18 holes of golf every two weeks.
