This is like a grenade injury: Mysterious flesh-eating bugs attack teen swimming in the ocean in Australia

What looks like a war injury or even a grenade attack isn’t what you think of even in your worst nightmares.

No this teen from Brighton was left bleeding from an ocean swim by mysterious bugs, what are believed to be “sea lice”, that started devouring chunks of raw meat just after as shown in this video:

This Australian teen had the ear of its life, as when he went for a dip at Dendy Street Beach in Brighton, he walked out with tiny marine creatures eating his legs.

As described by BBC: ‘Sam described feeling pins and needles in his legs after standing waist-deep in dark cold water for about half an hour. After shaking off what he thought was sand coated around his ankles, he walked across the beach before looking down and realising that his feet were “covered in blood”. “It looked like a war injury… like a grenade attack. It was really bloody” his father told BBC News.

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. 7News

The father collected thousands of these mysterious creatures, which were sent to some experts. A marine biologist believes that the bugs are lysianassid amphipods, or sea fleas, tiny scavenging marine animals.
