The ocean is full of weird, dangerous creatures. Luckily for us, most of them live out in the deep. But today an Australian teen is dealing with an encounter that has scientists bewildered and his loved ones horrified.
Sam Kanizay, 16, dipped his feet into the Waters of Brighton’s Dendy Street Beach on Saturday to cool off after a soccer game. When he took his feet out, he noticed that his legs were caked in what appeared to be sand. Sam tried to shake it off and made a horrifying discovery.
Jarrod Kanizay, Sam’s dad, says that he saw “lots” of blood on his son’s legs. At home, they discovered thousands of small cuts on the teen’s foot as if he had been pricked with a bunch of needles. Jarrod says, “There was no stopping the bleeding, we just had to get him to the hospital.” Doctors tried to stop the bleeding with no success.
