Sharks are scary. They’re huge, powerful creatures who can tear a person in half with one bite. So, it’s no big shock that the general consensus is to stay away from them.
However, if on the off chance you do find yourself trying to scramble onto a boat to escape the gaping jaws of Jaws, it’s probably a good thing if the boat you’re scrambling onto is filled with nurses.
And that’s what happened to one spear fisherman while he was diving off the coast of Florida with a group of friends.
According to reports, the 40-year-old was bitten by a shark. Fortunately for the injured diver, one of his friends was able to flag down a passing boat who rushed to the man’s aid and allowed him to climb aboard.
And if that wasn’t enough, the boat was manned by a group of medical professionals who were able to apply first aid to the man’s wound.
According to reports, the captain of the boat called 911 and nurses were able to apply a tourniquet to the man’s injured arm and stop the bleeding.
