If you were attacked by a shark, and lived...

Do you think you would get back in the water after you've healed?

I was just watching "Top 5 - Eaten Alive" where they interviewed and walked you through the near deadly attacks of 5 different people. ALL of which are now back working or regularly swimming in the water...

One woman said she has even done a few "shark dives" since because she figures now that she lived through it once, her chances of being attacked again are almost nill...

What about you?

  • Maybe not the open waters but a pool I would

  • As an ocean lover, and SCUBA diver, the thought has certainly crossed my mind! I think if I were ever attacked and lived, I WOULD participate in the same activity that I was doing at the time I was attacked, but I would likely pick a different spot, or where sharks were not as common! :o)

  • I think I would be too afraid to get back in. I am scared after I hear about someone ELSE being bitten. LOL

  • I swam in water with sharks in it. I got out quick! So I don't think they were to hungry that time. But it took along time before I got back in, but I only go up to my waist now. Although I have not been in the water in over four years.

  • I really couldn't predict how I would react to such a traumatic experience.

  • Umm, the only water I would go back into are lakes and pools if I had a trauma with a shark.

  • I doubt I would go back in anything but a pool.

  • I'ld be grateful. Once I healed I would dive right back in the water. You can't get over fears by standing in the sides lines. I always face my fears, excepts for spiders. AWWW
