How to Survive a Shark Attack


How to Survive a Shark Attack. Escape a shark’s jaws of death with these
lifesaving strategies. You will need Composure and bravery. Step 1. Try to stay calm. You’re unlikely to run into the kind of shark
that attacks humans unprovoked — bull sharks, tiger sharks, and great whites. More likely, it will be a smaller species
that will give you the once over and go away, as long as it doesn’t feel threatened. Step 2. Begin swimming away, as smoothly and quietly
as possible. Splashing around wildly and screaming will
only call the shark’s attention to you, and may even incite it to attack. A shark that hunches its back, drops its fins,
swims in a zigzag motion, or dives to the bottom and rubs its belly is displaying agitation
— a mood you don’t want to be around. Step 3. If the shark is approaching you and there’s
no time to swim away, try to back up against something to minimize the areas the shark
can strike. If you’re with a diving buddy, you’ll both
have a better chance to survive if you ascend while pressed together, back to back. Step 4. If the worst happens and the shark begins
attacking, try to jab, punch, or kick them in its most sensitive areas — the eyes, nose,
and gills. Simply hitting them on the head will probably
do more damage to your hand. Step 5. If you see someone else being attacked, don’t
hesitate to help them. Sharks are less likely to attack a rescuer
and more likely to continue attacking the original victim. Step 6. Take heart: you’ll probably never have to
use any of this information because your chances of being attacked by a shark are one in 11.5
million. Did you know In 2007, a group of bottlenose
dolphins in Monterey, California rescued a surfer who was being attacked by a great white
shark.

Heylo (: so I've realised that the ever popular howcast doesn't have instagram, so I decided to have an instagram account for howcast (: I will credit everything to them and the purpose of having a howcast instagram account is purely for helping people and fan account only. So if you enjoy howcast, why not check out my instagram and get a few tips here and there instead of finding from howcast specifically for that one thing from their massive number of videos?

  11. The reason why the sharks attack is because when you swim you look like a type of fish and when your surfing they think you are a seal
    And sharks don't even like human blood…

  14. 1:13 She pronounced "nose" incorrectly because she made a Z sound but it's spelt with an S, so it should be pronounced as "nōs", not "nōz". She should pronounce "nose" with an S sound, not a Z sound because it's spelt with an S, not a Z. If the word spells with an S, it should always make an S sound, not a Z sound. If the word really spells with a Z, then that's only when making a Z sound is alright, otherwise the Z sound not alright with the S spelling.
