Sharks live in the ocean. iPhones live in the 2015 human being’s hand. We just saw those two worlds collide.
John Braxton, a 27-year-old from Hawaii, was spearfishing off the big island over the weekend when calamity crept into his life. John was attacked by a tiger shark. Luckily, he had a crew of friends there to save him. They helped him into the back of a pickup truck and whisked him off to the hospital. But in the process, John uploaded the clip you see above to Instagram. It’s an eerie glimpse into some of the most terrifying seconds of a man’s life. Last we heard, John’s in serious condition but expected to make a recovery. We wish him, his family and his friends all the best.
