Man bitten by shark, bear, snake in less than 4 years

A Colorado man attained a distinction last week that few-people would probably want to match.

When Dylan McWilliams was bitten by a shark Thursday in Hawaii, it supposed he had been bitten by a shark, a bear and a rattlesnake – all in less than four years.

“ We don’ t know, ” McWilliams told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser on Friday. “ I’ meters either really lucky or actually unlucky. ”

Not surprisingly, the 20-year-old through Grand Junction says he usually spends a lot of time outdoors.

In Thursday’ s assault, about 50 yards from Shipwreck’ s Beach off Poipu, McWilliams suffered deep cuts to one associated with his legs, but the injury wasn’ t life-threatening, Hawaii News Now documented .

“The scariest part was going swimming back, ” he told this news outlet, adding that he was expecting the shark wouldn’ t carry on following the trail of blood through his leg.

The leg wound necessary seven stitches, the Star-Advertiser documented.


Last July, McWilliams told the particular paper, he received nine staples in his scalp after a nearly 300-pound bear invaded his Colorado campsite.

“The bear grabbed the back of me and started pulling me and am was fighting back as best when i could, ” he told The hawaiian islands News Now. “It dropped me personally and stomped on me a small amount, and I was able to get back to the group and they also scared it away. ”

As for the rattlesnake, that encounter occurred about three . 5 years ago in Utah, McWilliams informed the Star-Advertiser.

Luckily, he took in just a small amount of venom, so he had been only briefly ill afterward, he or she told the newspaper.

“ My parents are usually grateful I’ m still still living, ” he said.
