8-year-old boy stabbed and in excruciating pain after fish bites him

“8-Year-Old Boy Left Bleeding and Screaming After Fish Attack in Canada’s Parc Jean-Drapeau”

An 8-year-old boy, Max Mandl, from California, had a terrifying experience while playing on an inflatable structure anchored in Parc Jean-Drapeau’s man-made lake in Canada. The child dangled his leg in the water and was suddenly attacked by a fish, leaving him bleeding and screaming in agony, reminiscent of a scene from the movie “Jaws”.

Max’s dad, George Mandl, described the horrifying moment when his son started screaming and thrashing around in the water, with blood gushing from multiple places on his leg. Lifeguards rushed to pull Max out of the water and took him to the dock where he was covered in blood.

After being rushed to the hospital, medics were shocked by the deep lacerations and semi-circular bite marks on Max’s leg, indicating a serious attack. Experts believe that Max may have been bitten by a muskellunge, a cool water fish known for its sharp teeth and stealthy ambush hunting style.

This incident serves as a reminder of the dangers that can lurk beneath the surface of seemingly tranquil waters, and the importance of being cautious while enjoying recreational activities in natural environments.
