Shark bite victim previously attacked by bear and rattlesnake

Shark bite victim previously attacked by bear and rattlesnakeA Colorado man made it third time unlucky as he was attacked by a shark in Hawaii having already been mauled by a bear and bitten by a rattlesnake, all in less than four years, local media reported. Aged just 20-years-old, Dylan McWilliams was bodyboarding in the ocean off Kauai on Thursday, when what he believed to be a tiger shark between six and eight feet long took hold of his leg. The keen outdoorsman – who said he has worked as a survival training instructor – was able to swim around 30 yards back to shore, where a bystander called paramedics. "I didn't know if I lost half my leg or what," he said. McWilliams, of Grand Junction, western Colorado, received seven stitches in hospital – just months after he was given nine staples in his scalp following an altercation with a black bear at a Colorado summer camp last July.

It then dragged him, only dropping its grip as he punched it and poked it in the eye. "I guess I was just in the wrong spot at the wrong time," he said of the attack, which caught the attention of media outlets worldwide.

However, he told the Star Advertiser, the bite was not severe, and he was only ill for a couple of days. "My parents are grateful I'm still alive," he added.
