Colorado man survives shark, snake and bear attacks

He had already been mauled by a bear and bitten by a rattlesnake all in less than four years

In his latest escapade, Mr McWilliams was bodyboarding off the Hawaiian coast when an eight-foot tiger shark took a bite out of his leg.

McWilliams received stitches and will be okay, but he could be named the most unluckiest - or luckiest -guy in Colorado.

A man who survived a shark attack in Hawaii Thursday has in the past four years also survived being mauled by a bear and bitten by a rattlesnake, it has emerged.

But to top it all off, he was attacked by a shark last week, RNZ reported.

Scripps Denver affiliate KMGH-TV spoke with McWilliams last summer following the attack.

As he was sleeping outdoors, Mr McWilliams said he was awoken by the bear biting the back of his head.

Another encounter saw him bitten by a rattlesnake, though apparently this episode was less severe.

The shark attack came so fast he only had a chance to kick at it, he said.

"I guess I was just in the wrong spot at the wrong time", he said.

'After it dropped me and I got back to where everybody was, I just laid down, and the blood was all over my eyes and I couldn't see.

But the bear and shark attacks haven't been the only two times he's had a risky encounter with wildlife.

He said: "'The bear grabbed the back of my head and started pulling me and I was fighting back as best as I could", he said. "It bit me too". 'I was very afraid for my life, ' he said. "I always wanted to be like him". "I could feel him underneath me once when I kicked, so that might've deterred him", McWilliams said. He plans on returning to surfing once his bite wound heals. "But my dad said I need to buy a lottery ticket or something".
