‘Jackass’ Star Suffers Shark Bite after Stunt goes Wrong

The newest star of Jackass suffered a horror shark bite when a wakeboarding jump over infested waters went wrong as the team carried out stunts for Shark Week.

fter emerging from a handful of antics unscathed during their Discovery special on Sunday, Jackass members Steve-O and and Chris Pontius decided to send one of the newest of their crew, Sean McInerney – nicknamed ‘Poopies’ – wakeboarding across shark infested waters.

After a successful initial run, they decided to up the stakes and ‘jump the shark’, sending McInerney off a ramp. But McInerney failed to stick the landing, and plunged into the waters as sharks swarmed towards him.  He was almost immediately bitten on the hand, as crew members raced to rescue him.  With McInerney bleeding profusely, safety and medical crews shout for a tourniquet. In an interview with Steve WillDoIt before it aired, Steve-O, aka Stephen Glover, revealed that McInerney’s injury was much worse than the special lets on, and that he was lucky to be alive. 

He said McInerney had been ‘mangled’ in the attack, and required surgery to reattach tendons and two arteries in his hand.    

‘He would be f**king dead if they didn’t dive on him as fast as they did. Jesus, he got wrecked by a shark! For a Shark Week episode!’
