Every now and then we hear of sharks attacking humans. Fortunately, these are very rare events. However, when a shark attacks humans, it can cause very serious injuries, even death.

According to the researchers, these fish do not attack people for food, but they bite because they intend to understand what humans are.

The main advice to avoid being bitten is not to swim in areas where these animals live, but if by chance we find ourselves in waters infested with sharks, here are some tips that can certainly be useful in case we are attacked .

First of all, we advise you to keep the specimen that we are near in sight. Indeed, these fish can attack by swimming in circles, from bottom to top or from behind. It is therefore important to always observe it while looking for a way to escape.

At the same time, it is important to always remain calm. Trying to escape by swimming probably won’t save you unless you’re near a beach.

Sharks, advice in case of attack

It is not unlikely that the shark will go away on its own. However, clarity and coldness are fundamental. Walk slowly toward the beach or boat near you, without kicking or waving.

Do not stop the animal’s trajectory. Move, in case you find yourself between the fish and the open sea. When you move, never turn your back on the animal and above all always keep the shark in sight.

If you can’t get out of the sea, try to decrease the points where the fish can touch you by leaning, if possible, on anything that might prevent it from attacking you from behind.

If the shark attacks you, hit it in the face, eyes, and gills with any weapon or item you have at your disposal. If you don’t have one, hit him repeatedly in the face, eyes, or gills with your fists, knees, elbows, or kicks until he gets away.

At this point, get out of the water as quickly as possible, because you won’t be safe anyway, as the shark might come back. Swim back to the beach or boat quickly without splashing.

Once out of the water, if you have been bitten, seek medical attention as soon as possible, as you may have lost a lot of blood and may need to stop the bleeding immediately.
