Man Lives Through Real Shark Week
Dan Collins pointed me in the direction of a pretty incredible story. It was about a man from Largo, Florida. Seems 29 year old Erick Norrie was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
According to Fox 13 News out of Tampa,
It happened just off the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas, where he and his family were vacationing. They had just had lunch, and Norrie went snorkeling and spearfishing for their grouper dinner for later.
Norrie had just speared a grouper and was ready to put it with his collection when he realized that he was being bitten…by a shark!
“I didn’t keep my head cool, the Lord kept my head cool,” said Norrie reverently. “Because I couldn’t have done it without him; he sustained me, kept me calm.”
Norrie has also been struck by lightning, and his right leg has been bitten by a rattlesnake. He’s also been punched by monkeys twice, and now can claim that he’s survived a major shark bite.
