Did marine critters eat Brighton teenager's legs?

Did marine critters eat Brighton teenager's legs?

When he went home, Kanizay tried to wash off the blood, but the bleeding did not stop.

St Kilda midfielder Koby Stevens has revealed the Saints narrowly escaped the mysterious "sea lice" that left a Melbourne teenager's legs bleeding profusely.

Kanizay said. "I thought that someone had to solve the puzzle as to what had eaten Sam's legs".

The elder Kanizay said an enormous pool of blood was on the hospital floor stemming from the cuts on his son's legs, and none of the medical professionals knew what had caused the trauma.

Sea lice are parasitic creatures, called copepods, which feast on various fish species in the southern Pacific and in the Caribbean.

Sam could have been attacked by sea lice, stingrays or jellyfish larvae.

"It sort of looked like hundreds of little pinholes or pin-sized bites distributed all over my ankle and the top of my foot".

According to Australian broadcaster ABC, 16-year-old Sam Kanizay, felt sore after playing football on Saturday when he chose to soak his legs at a beach in Brighton just before 6.30pm.

"Maybe the strong westerly winds pushed them towards the shore and they congregated on the eastern side of the bay where Sam went", he said. As with any form of lice, these so-called "sea lice" are not a source of fun for anyone.




Kanizay, who was rushed to the hospital, is believed to have come in contact with some type of "flesh-eating bug," according to Telegraph.

Associate Professor Reina said sea fleas were common in waters but had a theory about why they may have been hanging around Brighton on the weekend.

"I think it's very rare", Mr Reina told news.com.au.

Sam Kazinay, 16, went for a dip in Brighton, near Melbourne, on Saturday, August 5.

Sam told News Corp he would probably use the pool to ice his legs in the future, but it wouldn't keep him away from the beach completely.

The following night Jarrod went back to the beach with a net filled with raw red meat and caught the creatures he believes were responsible for his son's injuries. They're not known for swarming and attacking people.

"No one knows what the creatures are".

"What is really clear is these little things really love meat", Mr Kanizay concluded. He said, 'Dad, you better come down outside.' I said, 'Why?' He said, 'Just come down!' "It was just unlucky", she said in a statement.
