Man struggles with nurse shark that bites not once, but twice

Man struggles with nurse shark that bites not once, but twice”

Officials said attacks by nurse sharks are rare, with only about seven bites recorded in Florida during the past century.

According to Fox News, Ervin Maccarty was snorkeling with friends off the coast of Florida when a nurse shark suddenly clamped onto his stomach with no intention of letting go.

"I had to get to the boat with no hands to swim with".

"It wouldn't let go so I had to hold it tight with both hands so it wouldn't rip me open and I had to get up for air with the shark pulling me down".

"As soon as I get down there the shark came out of another hole and bit me". He said it was quite the struggle - no matter what, the shark would not let go. I eventually got there.

"I thought I was drowning", Ervin said. "I didn't know if someone kicked me or what".

McCarty said he was out of breath and lacked energy in order to keep the nurse shark from shaking.

A friend stabbed the shark to get it off; It was their only option.

Maccartay added that he feared the shark would tare him open due to the blood spurting everywhere in the gruesome video captured, added the Daily Mirror.

After stabbing the shark, it took six minutes longer for its jaws to release - before biting McCarty a second time.

After a medical check-up, McCarty said he's ready to go back into the water. "I will continue to snorkel - just make sure there is not a nurse shark around!" "I'll continue to fish".

"I'm bleeding (the shark) out", the friend says in the video.

Video of a man with a nurse shark latched onto his belly has got to be the weirdest thing you've ever seen. The footage from the boat during this weird experience shows just how stubborn the shark was.

McCarty said he and his friends tried to pry the shark off his skin, but they eventually had to resort to stabbing it.
