Default Russian man eaten by shark in Egypt

Warning: video is very graphic...

https://www.thedailybeast.com/touris...on-egypt-beach

.....Terrifying footage of the encounter shows hotel staffers screaming for swimmers to get out of the water as the shark’s fin can be seen approaching.

Popov can then be seen struggling with the shark before it becomes clear to all those watching that it’s a losing battle. According to Russian media reports, his father was watching on the beach at the time of the attack, and Popov had cried out for him as he struggled to escape the shark.

“It’s eating his remains now,” one witness who filmed the attack can be heard saying. Shortly after, the beast pulled him completely underwater......

Red Sea is notorious for sharks. But, once you enter the oceans anywhere, you are no longer top of the food chain.

You can play with sharks-just make sure they are the right type.

Had this happened in 2020, the official cause of death would have been the Chinese sniffles, so you figure it out.

You forgot the gators, for those relegated to live in Floriduh.

At least on land with bears, a pistol can be carried. Not so much when swimming...

How many people in FL dies annually from alligator attacks, please reply, thanks.

Actually, I can assist, as you will probably take the high, or BS, road.

https://www.tcpalm.com/story/news/lo...n/69926522007/

Quote:
From 1948 to 2021, 442 unprovoked bite incidents have occurred in Florida. Twenty-six of the bites resulted inpeople being killed by wild alligators.

A total of 303 people have received major injuries and 139 have received minor injuries over the same time period.

The deadliest year on record for deadly alligator attacks was in 1993, when two people were killed.

In 1977, 13 people received major injuries, followed by 11 in 2001 and 10 in 2017.
Yep, 26 deaths in 73 years, which is 0.35 deaths per year, 1 death every 3 years--most are in waters for which they ignored multiple warnings, these are not waterfront grabs.

More people than the 26 die in nc each week due to shitty contractors who think there are engineers.
