Keep your eyes open

Keep your peepers wide open guys, these things can turn your day bad real quick. The thing to remember is if you can apply CPR until you get to shore the person who has been bitten has a good chance of surviving.

 Would be interesting to know how many the pros are getting and from which areas. 

 

for safety reasons alone this should be documented.
