It was a third timer for a Colorado man as he was attacked by a shark in Hawaii, the poor fellow has already been mauled by a bear, also bitten by a rattlesnake, and that in a time period of fewer than four years. The person's name is Dylan McWilliams and he is just in his 20 at present. This time he was bodyboarding in the ocean off Kauai when as per his given details a tiger shark between six and eight feet (around two meters) long chomped him on the leg, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported. The survivor said he has also worked as a survival training instructor therefore was able to swim around 30 yards (meters) back to shore, where a bystander called paramedics. “I didn’t know if I lost half my leg or what,” he said. McWilliams had to be given seven stitches in hospital that too just months after he was given nine staples in his scalp following an altercation with a black bear at a Colorado summer camp last July. As he slept outdoors, McWilliams said he was awoken by the bear biting the back of his head. It then dragged him, only dropping its grip as he punched it and poked it in the eye. “I guess I was just in the wrong spot at the wrong time,” he said of the attack, which caught the attention of media outlets worldwide. The two attacks followed his first run-in with a rattlesnake during a Utah hiking trip. However, he told the Star-Advertiser, the bite was not severe, and he was only ill for a couple of days. “My parents are grateful I’m still alive,” he added.
