One Tough Snorkeler
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA—Snorkeler Luke Tresoglavic recently swam 1,000 feet to shore, walked to his car and drove to a local surf club—all with a 23-inch carpet shark attached to his leg.

Tresoglavic says he was snorkeling near a reef when the shark bit his leg. The fish remained firmly clamped until lifeguards flushed its gills with freshwater.

Tresoglavic was taken to a hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

He was so lucky that he didn't ring the dinner bell for other sharks. That was a long swim to shore.


Bass are toys. Gills and Trout are food.
There is a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an Idiot
