[A MUST SEE VIDEO] Man Is Almost Eaten Alive By Great White Shark & Somehow Survives To Tell The Tale
Man might think that he is the ultimate life-form on the planet, but when faced by an apex predator in it’s own environment, man is a couple of clicks down on the food-chain. When out in the open, without a weapon, we are just as vulnerable to the attacks of one of those predators as any other prey animal. Whether it’s a grizzly bear out in the woods of North America, or a lion on the African savanna, without a weapon to defend ourselves, we really don’t stand much of a chance especially if a large predator has decided to have us for it’s lunch.
And that especially goes for sharks. Sharks have been around for millions of years and they are the ultimate killing machine, they do not posses a soul and are driven by pure instinct and blind hunger. I’m thinking that this particular story, has to be one for the record books!! I don’t know of too many people who have ever had their upper-body (head first) in the mouth of a great white shark and actually managed to survive the encounter and lived to tell the tale.
So, if you already had a fear of going scuba diving out in the open ocean because you are afraid of being eaten by a shark, then this particular story will only cement that fear. You should remember, that to a shark (especially a Great White Shark), we humans are just another item on the menu.
An Australian diver who survived being half-swallowed by a great white shark said that being clamped between the animal’s massive jaws was like being trapped in a dark cave. Describing his remarkable escape for the first time, Eric Nerhus said that after fighting off the 12ft-long man-eater he feared that it would attack again and bite off his legs as he desperately tried to scramble into a boat. The 41-year-old professional diver said he felt like “the luckiest man alive” after narrowly avoiding ending up as “fish food” during the terrifying attack.
