Man Lives Through Real Shark Week

Dan Collins pointed me in the direction of a pretty incredible story.  It was about a man from Largo, Florida. Seems 29 year old Erick Norrie was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

According to Fox 13 News out of Tampa,

It happened just off the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas, where he and his family were vacationing. They had just had lunch, and Norrie went snorkeling and spearfishing for their grouper dinner for later.

Norrie had just speared a grouper and was ready to put it with his collection when he realized that he was being bitten…by a shark!

“I didn’t keep my head cool, the Lord kept my head cool,” said Norrie reverently. “Because I couldn’t have done it without him; he sustained me, kept me calm.”

Norrie’s daughter was able to get on the radio and alert authorities.  The shark ended up taking quite a chunk out of his leg.  Norrie is up and moving around and waiting for plastic surgery.
Now then, it’s the rest of Norrie’s story that got my attention.  I like how he credited God with helping him through the ordeal.  It’s pretty amazing how people can latch on to the Lord when things are going so bad around them at the time.  But it’s the rest of Lorrie’s story that is nothing short of incredible.
According to Fox 13,
Norrie has also been struck by lightning, and his right leg has been bitten by a rattlesnake. He’s also been punched by monkeys twice, and now can claim that he’s survived a major shark bite.
Hey, you can’t make that kind of stuff up can you?
