  • Punch him in the gills!!!!

    This is a good piece of info to know since everybody is vacationing this time of yr. It could save your life or your kid's life if you teach them this. Sharks come out of no-where into the shallow areas where kids are wading--



    TV Helped Shark Attack Victim Survive

    Mon Aug 2, 04



    HOUSTON - An 11-year-old boy who was bitten by a shark off the Gulf of Mexico learned how to fight off the animal ā€” by punching it in the gills ā€” from watching television.



    "I was watching TV the day before and I saw that on the Discovery Channel," Aaron Perez said Monday on NBC's "Today" show.


    A surgeon at Memorial Hermann Children's Hospital in Houston spent more than four hours reattaching the boy's arm after last weekend's attack.


    Aaron's father, Blas Perez, said the boy was wading in a school of trout at a beach near Freeport when the attack occurred.


    "Aaron picked (a fish) up and he turned around to tell me, and when he did that the shark was right there and the dogfight was on," he told NBC.


    Freeport Fire Chief John Stanford said the animal was a bull shark, which is aggressive and swims in shallow water.


    The boy's father and a family friend separated the boy from the shark by hitting it with their fishing rods.


    "I've never been that violent in my life," Perez said.

    good info

    Fortunately, I prefer swimming pools over the ocean.

        Freeport is where I grew up, well about 5 min. from there. We would hear about shark attacks & drowning victims every summer. It's a good thing he knew what to do.

        THIS IS WHY I DON'T GO IN THE WATER!!!!!

          I'm with GnB on this one...I prefer a swimming pool any day over the ocean. Once you get into deeper water in the ocean and can't see below you, thats where I draw the line!

            If I ever get attacked by a shark now I'll know what to do. I don't think that will be happening anytime soon up here in the great white north.

                I only go in until I can't see my feet anymore. In the Gulf, that's foot deep. Not a foot, but top to bottom of your foot. Eewww!

                We swam in that crap as kids, every weekend until we were toasted little critters. Sun block? What's that? You're supposed to peel down layers at a time, right? Can barely get me on the beach now.

                Sometimes a little knowledge takes all the fun outta stuff. Like the nutritional info on burgers. Won't read it. There's meat...that's protein. Lettuce, tomato, pickles...there's your produce. Mayo...your fats. Buns...grains. It's all good.

                      The sad part is, you can't see your feet in that deep of water in the Gulf. Not only do you have to worry about sharks, but you don't know where the crabs are to avoid stepping on them.

                          i have been stung by a man o war before. It hurt like hell.

                          When I was in high school & there were lots of jelly fish on the beach, my boyfriend and I would go popping jellyfish with his truck. That was entertainment in my small town.

                              Poppin' ManOWar is even more fun. You don't need a truck. Set a board on them and be sure to wear shoes before you step on it. Pops like a blown up bag. Ummm...might wanna keep meat tenderizer on hand just in case some of it gets on you though.

                              So? Some of us got tired of looking for non-existant pretty shells on Galveston's beaches.
