YouTube / 木四水 潜易事Steven Diveconscious
Steven Sim is one lucky guy that has an incredible story to tell, and a video to prove it, showing a massive female tiger shark attacking him in the warm waters of Fiji. Steven shared the video on YouTube with a few words.
“This happened on May 17, 2019,” the caption reads on YouTube. “The video is from a buddy’s GoPro. I never thought this would happen to me.
The video shows a scuba guide pushing the curious tiger shark away with a stick to keep it from swimming too close to the group. However, it’s very curious and swims away from him to another diver that has his back turned to the shark.
As the shark swims over the man, it decides to bite down on his scuba tank, and it only escalates from there. The other divers rush over to Steven to try to push the shark off but then it takes an even bigger bite, and this time, getting part of Steven’s head in its mouth.
“His head was in the shark’s mouth, and later the dive master managed to kick her away,” a close friend of the diver told the media, according to The Inertia. “While the shark was leaving, (his) mask and hoodie were pulled off.”
Fortunately, with the help from the other divers, the shark lost interest in Steven, let him go, and swam away. Everybody turned around to check Steven to make sure he was ok and not bitten. He was fine, just a little shaken up and missing a few items.
