The Citizen reports that Parker Simpson of Key West posted a YouTube video of a reef shark charging him off the Florida Keys. Simpson was spearfishing in 50 feet of water about 6 miles off Key West when the shark attacked him.
According to the report, the 23-year-old got 50 stitches in his leg at a nearby hospital.
