However, on closer inspection, he stopped found out that it was an octopus and made a video of the animal in the shallow water with its tentacles striking a sudden blow in Karlson’s direction.

« The octopus attacked us, which was a real shock » Karlson said in comments emailed to Reuters.

« My glasses fogged up and then I was hit again, this time in the neck. I swam quickly back to the shore about 25 meters away, he added.

Karlson said he ran back to the bank and saw raised prints of tentacles on his arm, neck and upper back. Since he didn’t have vinegar, his preferred treatment for seafood stings, he poured Coke over the affected area, which did well in stopping the sting.
