Man Takes Selfie Moments Before Deadly Shark Attack

shark-selfie

Miami| An Oregon couple’s honeymoon vacation in Florida took a dramatic turn of events as the newly wed took a selfie of himself just moments before he fell victim to a deadly shark attack.

The 34 year old insurance salesman died in a gruesome fashion, losing great quantities of blood as he was being transported to South Miami Hospital, his right leg being torn off by the beast. Local lifeguards were still able to bring the man onto a boat and to the shore before an ambulance took him off to the emergency room. Tragically, the man that had been married only a few hours died in the arms of his beloved one on the way to the Hospital.

“He always dreamed of coming back to Florida one day and visiting Walt Disney World once again, as he had did when he was 4 years old” explains the widow. “I’m glad he had a chance to live his dream before he left this world” adds the woman in tears.

The couple that celebrated their marriage in Orlando’s Disney World, were on their way to the airport when James Crowlett decided he wanted to go for a dip, hours before the flight back home. “It was a beautiful day, there was not a cloud in sight, how could this all go so terribly wrong?” asks his mother, witness to the horrific scene. “My baby is gone forever” she adds, visibly traumatized by the latest events.

Sinc ehe was a kid, James Cowertt dreamed of celebrating his honeymoon in Orlando's Walt Disney Theme Park

James Crowlett and his wife, days before the dreadful event, in company of Cinderella and Prince Charming in Orlando’s Walt Disney Theme Park where the lovers celebrated their honeymoon

The man’s selfie that was automatically published on his facebook page took his friends by surprise, some even thinking it was a joke. “Watch Out for that great white shark! Lol!” could you read in the comments from one of his friends, obviously not aware of the drama behind the picture. James family rapidly took down the picture off his Facebook wall the next day.

      Austin, I apologize on behalf of all human beings for the two comments posted to you before mine. What a shame. Thank you Austin for being the kind of person who cares deeply about other peoples feelings and tragedies they go through that are so terribly painful. God Bless you. Carl and Jacob… SHAME on you!

    • so tragic & Carl your ignorant person sorry to say

    • Austin,
      You’re 18? Where did you go to school? Your english teachers suck.

    • Austin, do not listen to these idiots. That was very sweet of you to think of his wife and post what you did. Very sad this had to happen.

    • suckadick on August 12, 2014 at 12:31 am said:

      Gail, its “you’re”. Fairly ironically. Lynn, whilst I must admit that Austin was only being thoughtful and caring, that doesn’t mean we must condone complete and utter idiocy in so many ways. Learning to possibly construct a sentence of even average grammatical accuracy would be my particular two cents initially, then I would suggest reveling in that age old touch of braided yarn as one dangles from the insect ridden, structurally compromised timber in your fucking lonely mentally compromised room. Ps This “shark attack” is a right old load of codswallop.

      @Carl, @Jacob,

      If and when English is not your maternal language and you can speak and spell Dutch, French and Italian flawless, then you ‘might’ have a right to speak. I wrote might, because a person is dead here, for all I care he wrote phonetic, ai down ki!

    • Kate… no one is dead, your stupidity is hilarious

    • You’re a special kind of retarded, aren’t you?

    • All of these rude people are ridiculous. It just goes to show how ignorant society has become.

    • also – @ SuckaDick: Are you a neckbeard?
