We pick and choose exactly what kind of reality based stories to cover here on Dread Central, mainly because, well, real world news is depressing and more horrific than anything we can conjure up. However, every now and again something grabs us (or should I say bites us?), and we can’t resist. Case in point …
Imagine chilling on a fishing boat when all of a sudden a 375-pound shark leaps out of the water, jaws blazing, and jumps onto your water treading vehicle?
Twenty-nine-year-old Jason Kresse of Freeport, Texas, says he and two crew members were dumping fish guts in the Gulf of Mexico at about 3:45 a.m. on Monday, March 28, when they heard splashes in the distance and then something hit the side of their 25-foot boat.
A shark in an apparent rush to feed had jumped into the back and was thrashing around, reports AOL/ABC News. Kresse says the crew couldn’t get close enough to the fish to toss it back in the water. It died several hours later.
