Sometimes life is stranger thanÂ fiction, and this is a story you absolutely could not make up. The other day, I wrote a story about how Egypt thought Israeli agents released a shark in their waters to discourage tourism. Well now that shark is dead, and you’ll never guess how.
The Serbian hero was too drunk to remember what had happened, though one of his friends who witnessed the incident explained it all for the Belgrade based media.
Dragan Stevic was dubbed by the Egyptian media as “Shark El Sheikh” and thanked him for saving their tourist season.
Milovan Ubirapa, one of Stevicâ€™s friend who witnessed the incident explained that 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.
â€œDragan 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 itâ€ says Milovan.
â€œDragan jumped high and plunged down to the sea, but didnâ€™t make as much splash as we thought he wouldâ€, 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 (pictured above).
It’s a one in a billion chance, but yes, a man jumped into the water, landed on the deadlist shark in the area, and killed it instantly. Too bad he doesn’t remember any of it because he was blackout drunk. I can’t get over how amazing every aspect of this story is.
