Shark Week on the Discovery Channel is always listed as one of the most-watched special-interest shows on cable T.V. Every year, and the T.V. network sets aside one week of programming to show things about sharks. This year, Discovery has worked with the people who make “Jackass” and professional stuntmen to do a series of stunts involving sharks.
During one of the tricks, Poopies fell off the wakeboard and landed in the shark tank by accident. The surfer didn’t swim fast enough to escape the danger zone in time, so a shark bit his hand.
But the medical team acted quickly, and one of the workers put his own life in danger to pull Poopies out of the water. Luckily, Poopies made it. After getting medical help immediately, the performer was taken out of the arena for surgery.
