Back in my school days, when people asked what I wanted to be, it was either an Arsenal midfielder, car designer, Top Gear host, or one of those guy that swims into aquarium tanks and helps pregnant sharks.
None of the first three worked out for me (even though it looks like Top Gear will host anyone these days), and the shark one was a lie – but a relevant lie.
That’s because one of those guys that swims into shark tanks to help pregnant sharks just got attacked by a pregnant shark. And it’s really, really gruesome. It happened in Durban, South Africa, where a sedated pregnant shark lashed out at a diver who was trying to help and bit him on the arm.
***WARNING – THIS GETS PRETTY GRAPHIC***
If you’re in water full of sharks with blood pouring out of one of your peers, shouldn’t you get out of the water? I don’t know – I’ve probably missed something.
The diver’s all good now, thankfully. Still swimming, though…
But yeah, that’s terrifying. Glad I ended up designing cars. Oh wait…
What do you think? Tis but a flesh wound? Let us know in the comments!
