Unlucky Man Attacked By Shark And Bear Within 9 Months, Still Survives

Hawaii shark bite victim previously attacked by bear, snake: Report

He attributes these risky incidents to just being in the wrong place at the wrong time, adding: "I don't blame the shark, I don't blame the bear, and I don't blame the rattlesnake".

"The scariest part was swimming back", he told the news outlet, adding that he was hoping the predator, which he believed was a tiger shark, wouldn't continue following the trail of blood from his leg.

In his latest escapade, Mr McWilliams was bodyboarding off the Hawaiian coast when an eight-foot tiger shark took a bite out of his leg. I didn't know where the shark was, and I didn't know if he would come after me again, ' he said.

McWilliams said that after he was bit, he did try to find the shark which he thinks was 6 or 7 feet long but was nervous that it could be somewhere nearby.

A young man from Colorado shared details about how he survived a shark attack.

Asked how he felt after escaping the jaws of a shark, Mr McWilliams simply replied: "I'm just mad that I can't get back in the water for a couple days".

He's a former tree trimmer, ranch hand and survival training instructor who loves extended journeys into the wilderness.

"I just woke up to a loud crunching sound. It dragged me out of my tent by my head". I kind of thought it was a dream for a second. "I didn't know if I lost half my leg or what".

As for the rattlesnake, that encounter occurred about three and a half years ago in Utah, McWilliams told the Star-Advertiser.

"At first I panicked", he said.

However, even after suffering the injuries, McWilliams said he is not afraid of wildlife and considers the late Steve Irwin as one of his idols. I'm out with the animals all the time.

"My parents are grateful I'm still alive", he said.
