Keep Away From Bump And Bite Attacks By Shark

It look so each summer passes have the number of shark attacks being reported throughout the world. Some would believe this must mean there is an increase in the number of sharks attacking people in the sea. Figuratively speaking, an increase in the population could result in an increase in attacks and more people to damage.

More people are injured and killed on land while driving to and from the beach than by sharks in the water. Shark attack injuries are also less common than injuries afflicted on the beach, such as spinal cord damage, jellyfish stings, dehydration, and sunburn. More people require sutures as a result of sea shell lacerations on their feet than shark bites. You have a better chance of being hit by lightning, dying from a bee sting or being hit on the head by a falling coconut, than you do of being attacked by a shark.
