Dangerous Jackass stunt for Shark Week ends with bloody shark bite

As if Discovery channel’s Shark Week isn’t intense enough, this year the guys from Jackass decided to get in on the shark-infested fun. And after a few different stunts which resulted in nothing but safe and sound results, Steve-O and Chris Pontius sent their friend Sean McInerney, aka Poopies, over an impossible jump with nothing but sharks swimming below. And perhaps you can guess what happened next.

After easily wakeboarding across a shark-infested area with ease, it was decided that McInerney would try to jump over the area on his wakeboard using a large ramp. Unfortunately, he had a bit of trouble sticking the landing and was almost immediately bitten by a shark on his arm and hand after he entered the water. Of course given the nature of the stunts performed by the Jackass crew, help was immediately on the scene. And Steve-O, who has sustained his fair share of gruesome injuries over the years, didn’t seem overly concerned.

“This was only one bite in one spot?” Steve-O asked. “And he’s not missing anything?”

Pontius however, had a bit more somber and realistic outlook on the stunt.

“It’s a reminder that yeah, like, we are pushing it pretty hard. And this could happen, of course,” Pontius said. “It’s either, like, everything’s okay or this happens. And hopefully it’s always everything’s okay, everything’s okay. But then… You know, this time it’s not okay.”

Viewers on Twitter didn’t seem too concerned with the well-being of Poopies, and were more just glad that the Jackass guys were there to be a part of Shark Week.

Thankfully McInerny didn’t sustain more than a hand injury from the shark bite, and when he showed up in a later interview after the fact with a cast covering his forearm and hand, he pretty much had only Steve-O and his friends to blame for what happened.

I knew there was a chance I was gonna get bit by a shark but I didn’t think it was gonna happen,” McInerney said. “ No, I don’t blame the sharks at all. I mean, I was in their living room, and it was dinner time.”

Shark Week programming airs through July 18th on Discovery.
