Australian Teenager's Feet Bleeds Profusely After Being Bit by 'Tiny Sea Creatures'

08 August 2017

He had grown up in that area of Melbourne, part of an active family that participated in triathlons and frequently swam in the ocean.

Stevens said a friend of his had recently left the water with blood on his feet much like Kanizay.

Pro of living in Australia: The beaches are great. Yeah, I wasn't expecting it at all. He rang me, actually, from outside....

Their size ranges from half a centimetre to 1cm and they are usually found in shallows and leave an itchy sensation if they come in contact with a person.

After realising they could not stop the bleeding, the teenager was rushed to hospital where staff were baffled by the "pin-sized holes" all over his legs. There was also a massive amount of blood.

Arsene Wenger: 'Arsenal board backs my stance on Alexis Sanchez'
According to the Daily Express , the Spanish tactician is desperate for Arsenal attacker Sanchez to join the Citizens this season. One minute he's on his way out of Arsenal , and the next a club drops interest and we're back to square one.

Dr. Walker-Smith confirmed that these creatures can feast on human flesh, but it is incredibly rare to receive injuries on the scale that Kanizay did, according to The Age.

The chill of the water had apparently numbed Sam's feet enough to where he didn't feel any bites while he was standing in the bay.

Poore added that id sea lice were the cause of Sam Kanizay's injuries, it was a "pretty dramatic example" of an attack by the minuscule flesh-eating sea creatures.

"It kept bleeding for quite a while and it's still oozing out now, but yeah, it just wouldn't stop when we were hosing it down, so we chose to go to the hospital", he said.

"So what's to blame?" he posted on Facebook. "I think as long as you're moving around, they're unlikely to attack you", he said. "It just kept bleeding and bleeding".

N Korea delivers new threat over sanctions
Despite that, Pyongyang has continued developing its nuclear and weapons program. "We'll know it when we see it", Tillerson said. However, it is not clear whether the North has yet developed a nuclear warhead small enough to be mounted to the missile.

Kanizay's father, Jarrod, returned to the ocean to catch the creatures that had a go at his son.

The creatures are a type of copepod, a Greek word for "oar-footed" because they have a "pair of swimming legs ... that are moved together, like the oars of a sculling shell", the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History explains. When he got there, he decided he'd better not go inside, because the bleeding was so bad.

The marine biologist said the culprit was likely crustaceans called amphipods, which scavenge on decomposing plant and animal scraps, like slaters do in the garden.

Scientists have described lysianassid amphipods as some of the most abundant and widespread scavengers in the seas-not to mention, they're also ferocious.

"They have chemo-receptors, so they can detect chemicals in the water and the chemicals given off by decaying meat or fish, so they're attracted to that smell".
