This Guy Has Survived A Snake, A Bear & A Shark Attack!

Bad Luck Comes In Threes??

A 20 year old American by the name of Dylan McWilliams has survived his third brush with the animal kingdom - he was attacked by a Tiger Shark off the Coast of Hawaii!!

He was out surfing last week when he felt a nudge on his leg, he explained "I saw the shark underneath me. I started kicking at it - I know I hit it at least once - and swam to shore as quickly as I could."

Over the last few years Dylan has spent his time backpacking around the world, funding his travels with odd jobs working as a ranch hand and even as a survival training instructor.

He put the survival training to good use when he was camping last year, when he was woken up to find his head being clamped in the jaws of a bear.

His friends awoke to the commotion, but after the 136kg male bear stomped on Dylan, it walked away.

Just when you thought the ordeal was over, it wasn't... Dylan was hiking many years ago when a rattlesnake attacked him in Utah "I was walking down a trail and I thought I kicked a cactus but couldn't see one, and then saw a rattlesnake all coiled up." 

He chose not to go to hospital as he figured he had only suffered a dry bite "There was a little venom so I did get a bit sick for a couple of days,"  Dylan said "We have to respect [animals'] boundaries but I don't think I was invading or provoking any of the attacks - they just happened."
