Video: Shark Bites Swimmer and Refuses to Let Go


This “Jaws” is a small nurse shark, not a Great White — but its shocking attack evokes horrific scenes from the 1975 flick.

Stomach-churning video shows the predator latched onto the stomach of a terrified Ervin Maccarty, who went swimming off the coast of Marathon, Fla.

“Don’t cut me! Don’t bleed him out on me!” Maccarty yells after climbing onto a boat as a friend – who appears to need a bigger knife – slices away at the shark.

“He didn’t get your penis, did he?” another chum says, trying to inject some gallows humor as Maccarty writhes in pain and blood spurts everywhere.
