Flesh-eating bugs at Brighton beach: What really ate Sam and why

Carolyn Webb Ebony Bowden Liam Mannix


News of a teenage boy's legs being treated as dinner by flesh-eating sea critters as he took a dip at a Melbourne beach has brought back all-too-vivid memories of the frenzied feasting in 1970s flick Piranha.

Social media and radio talkback was awash on Monday with members of the public vowing never to swim in the sea again after 16-year-old Sam Kanizay​ emerged from a dip at Brighton beach on Saturday night with his lower legs covered in blood and tiny bite marks.

Yep, it's been the big local story for a while. Rather a freak thing, actually - he was standing still in the water for quite some time, probably right next to wear a number of amphipods were feeding on something dead, and they latched on to him (he probably had a small existing cut). The marine biologists are speculating that something in there equivalent of saliva has an anti-clotting agent, to explain the extent of his bleeding.
