A shark terrorizes a seaside resort and only one man can stop it. A Serbian tourist drunk out of his skull.
Egypt’s resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh had already seen one death and four injuries from the shark stalking its waters. All of that ended when Serb Dragan Stevic had too much to drink and wanted to go for a swim:
Dragan had decided to go to the beach for a swim after a long night of drinking. As Dragan and his friends approached the beach, he saw a fairly high positioned jumping board utilized earlier in the day by divers.“Dragan climbed on the jumping board, told me to hold his beer and simply ran to jump. There was no time for me to react or to try to stop him, he just went for it” says Milovan.“Dragan jumped high and plunged down to the sea, but didn’t make as much splash as we thought he would”, explained Milovan.The reason could be because Dragan Stevic ended up jumping straight on the shark which was lurking near the beach, probably looking for its next victim. Dragan had nailed it right in the head, killing it instantly. The Egyptian police found the shark washed out on the beach that morning.Dragan was able to swim to the shore and told his friends he had twisted his ankle, telling them the water was not that soft.
Heroic Dragan ended up in the hospital. With alcohol poisoning.
