Hero Dad Punches Shark to Save Teen Daughter in 'Horrific' Attack: 'He Lives for His Children'

"Charlie wouldn't stop until it released his little girl," a family friend said of Charlie Winter and his daughter Paige Winter

 

 

“Despite this unfortunate circumstance, Paige is an unwavering advocate for the marine life and the animals who live in the water,” an update on the GoFundMe page states. “She wishes for people to continue to respect sharks in their environment and their safety.”

Yeah fuck that. As if you would ever get in the sea if you went to Martha's Vineyard.

I spent a year in Sydney about 15 years ago. I had a mate there, who one day turned up to the pub completely black and blue down his side. He told us that he had fallen off a rock while stoned; the rock was covered in barnacles and had basically gashed him. One of his house mates had said it looked like a shark bite, so when he next spoke to his mum, he thought it would be funny to tell her that he had been attacked by a shark, but that she shouldn't worry as he had got away.

 

He thought no more of it until a week later when his local newspaper in the UK called, wanting to hear about this shark attack (his frantic mum had been going round telling everyone about it). He was stoned when they called so he thought 'fuck it', and carried on the story. Again, he thought that would be the end of it, and proudly showed off the front page of the local paper with him on it. Another week passed, and he received another phonecall from the UK - from the Daily Mirror. He again weighed up his options (he was, as usual, stoned) and again thought 'fuck it', and ended up on the front page of a national newspaper, effectively for having slipped off a rock while wasted. We still call him shark boy to this day.
