A recent incident happened in Australia where a 16-year old football player named Sam Kahizay went to soak his feet in beach water and felt something tingling in his legs but didn’t pay too much attention as he imagined it to be just an effect of his sore feet.
But when he got out of the water, Sam was terrified for his feet already covered with his own blood.
The teenager went to the beach to relax his sore feet but did not expect a bunch of sea bugs were already feeding on him. Blood won’t stop coming out of his feet so his father Jarod rushed him to the hospital for treatment.
According to Daily Mail, the hospital staff wiped off the blood and saw hundreds of tiny holes and they were all over Sam’s ankle and top of his foot.
When Sam’s father asked the doctors what really happened or what attacked his son to cause him such injury, they could not get an answer. This urged Jarrod to do his own investigation of what really happened.
Jarrod investigated on the following by going back to the beach where the incident happened to his son. He brought with him a fishing net and a huge slice of fresh meat and soaked it in the water. When he picked up the meat, he was astonished as he saw hundreds of little mite-type creatures all over the meat which he thought was the cause of his son’s injury.
Sam’s feet suffered from numerous tiny holes where his blood continuously came out for several hours.
These mite-type creatures were then taken to the hospital. Tests were run to identify the real kind of species they are. Experts are not yet sure about what the sea bugs are but they observed the creatures suck on flesh until it’s totally drained of blood.
Sam is now recovering from his injury and says he will use the pool next time he feels sore. On his second night in the hospital, the bleeding of his leg had totally stopped. His experience in the beach just taught him to be more careful next time.
