I live in a state that has warm climate all year round, which means my family and I frequently visit the beach. And I’m not going to lie to you. Each and every time we take a dip in the ocean, I always have a “what if” in the back of my head. What if one of my kids gets a stingray bite? What if there are crabs in the water? Or worse, what if there’s a shark?
Of course, all of these “what if’s” hasn’t stopped us from visiting the beach. I absolutely love the tranquility and sound of the ocean water. But I do worry and I especially worry about my children’s safety. And for those parents who are just like me, this story isn’t going to help our ocean and beach fears at all. One Australian teen emerged completely bloodied form the ocean after he was attacked by sea lice. Let me tell you, this is the kind of stuff that nightmares are made out of. Let me warn you that the following photos are VERY graphic.
Here’s what happened.
