    Talk about a bad day.
    Shark drags woman into crocodile-infested waters in Australia
    Fox News

    A "once-in-a-lifetime" trip in May for a woman in Australia quickly turned into a harrowing experience when she suffered a bite while feeding a shark, which then dragged her into the water. Read the full story

    I read that full story and determined that the headline is the most over-dramatic and inaccurate I may have ever read.

    She was standing on a boat platform feeding nurse sharks when one bit the tip of one finger and she sort of went in, but not dragged. And she wasn't completely in, she remained mostly still on the platform, was hoisted back up immediately, and there wasn't a croc in site. It wasn't anywhere near what one might think after reading that headline. Aussie's are drama queens.

    Why do you let the facts get in the way of a good story? :)
