Shark attack plus...

They say lightning never strikes the same place twice, and your odds of winning last night’s Powerball were about 1 in 175 million. Tell that to the guy who was just bit by a shark after surviving both a lightning strike and an encounter with a rattlesnake.
Eric Norrie was spear fishing in  the Bahamas with his family when a shark suddenly bit his leg, tearing out a chunk and leaving a pool of Norrie’s blood in the water. “You could see a piece of my leg in his mouth,” said Norrie.
Norrie’s quick thinking, and brave, father-in-law jumped into the water and got between Norrie and the shark, protecting him from another attack. Meanwhile, his wife and four daughters pulled him to safety aboard the boat and quickly fashioned a tourniquet out of the bands of the spear gun.
