On Monday, May 7, 2018, a family vacationing in Hawaii decided to do what any normal family would do when visiting a tropical paradise, go the beach. It was a beautiful, sunny afternoon, and the beaches were buzzing with activity. The Benson’s arrived with their two children at 2:30 in the afternoon and settled into their beach chairs. They were completely unaware that in just a few short minutes, they would experience something unprecedented.
As Mr. Benson waded into the ocean currents with his 4 year old son, he did not think of the dangers lurking below. After about 5 minutes in the water, Mr. Benson states he felt a sharp pain in his leg. He looked over to see his four year old son begin to yell out in pain as well. Only seconds later, Mr. Benson and his son were dragged under the water, fighting for their lives. Mr. Benson said it was then that he remembered hearing survivors that poked the shark’s eye and the shark let them go. He said, “I realized it was actually one shark with two separate heads that had us both. Once I poked one of the shark’s eyes, I went for the next one to save my son.”
As one witness states, “It was like an actual seen from that movie, “2-Headed Shark Attack.”” Another witness says, “It’s scary to think that we have to worry about 2-headed sharks now. One was bad enough!”
Until further notice, Oahu beach is closed and scientists have begun to scour the area in search of this new find. We will continue to keep an eye on this story as more details arise.
