A fisherman in the Bahamas caught a shark and hoisted it up by its tail fin. While it was thrashing around it burped up a human leg… Location? off the coast of a place where the movie “Jaws: The Revenge” was filmed.
NBC News Miami writer Todd Wright falls victim to the old “misuse of the word irony” trap by calling this story “a case of cruel irony” (it isn’t), but it’s so omg-worthy that I’m willing to look past it.
Bahamian authorities have determined the body found in the belly of a tiger shark belonged to a man who disappeared near there.
Judson Newton disappeared off Jaws Beach on Aug. 29 and he, or his remains, did not surface until after a group of fishermen reeled in a bloated tiger shark with an apparent taste for human flesh.
The shark was caught on Sept. 4, but it’s still unclear if Judson was killed by the shark or drowned and eventually eaten by the ocean predator.
When a fisherman caught the shark off the coast of the Bahamas, it spit up a human leg trying to get away. Once the animal’s belly was opened, officials found another leg, arms and a torso of a large man. There was no head.
Pictures of the half digested body parts can be seen here…
UPDATE: I shared this story with my aunt, saying “they found all the guys body parts in the stomach of the shark”. her reply was “…did you see his penis?”. wtf??
