This happened last Wednesday but I only recently saw it and it's pretty :yikeseroo:

An 18-year-old from Louisiana who graduated high school three days earlier went on a pirate-themed booze cruise in the Bahamas with a bunch of other new graduates. At some point during the night somebody allegedly dared the kid to jump overboard. He did while people filmed it. He vanished almost instantly. The search was called off after one day.

quote:

A video has begun circulating on social media that allegedly shows missing U.S. citizen 18-year-old Cameron Robbins attacked by a shark in the Bahamas.

The video, which has so far been viewed more than 10 million times on Twitter, is being scrutinized, with some indicating the video allegedly shows the exact moment Robbins is pulled underneath the water by a shark after jumping off a cruise ship near Nassau, Bahamas.

The incident happened on Wednesday, May 24 and at around 11:30 P.M. Robbins reportedly jumped off the Blackbeard's Revenge sunset cruise ship.

A search party was was initially launched but on May 27, the United States Coast Guard, who had been assisting the Royal Bahamas Defence Force in the search, confirmed that the search had been concluded.

quote:

In the video, other guests upon the cruise ship can be heard swearing and eventually panicking as the footage allegedly shows Robbins getting pulled underneath the water.

"This kid f****** jumped off. Oh my f****** God. Oh, bye! Oh, s***," one man can be heard saying in the clip.

At one point, the person in the water appears to turn and swim in the opposite direction of the lifesaver ring that was thrown overboard.

People on the cruise ship begin to shout and call for the man to go to the lifesaver, only for someone to remark that the man is no longer visible.

Most people know you obviously never, EVER gently caress around and jump off a cruise ship, even a small one like this pirate gimmick. For one, people can disappear fast, especially at night. I think roughly 25% of people who fall from cruises are recovered (which is honestly higher than I expected). Plus, sea life, including sharks, are drawn to the scraps, noise, and structure of a large boat in the open ocean.

The video is grainy and you don't see anything graphic or even definitive, but it might be :nms: if you're twitchy about the ocean.

Twitter link to video: https://twitter.com/clipsthatgohard/status/1663522639682629632
You can find the brief video at any of the news articles about the incident like this one from Yahoo News)

Now, if you look carefully at the beginning, the kid appears to jump in right next to an 8-10 foot shark which quickly turns towards him (look for the swimming motion and turn up brightness if you have trouble seeing it). He seems to see it and starts swimming away from both the shark and a life preserver. The camera catches a few more glimpses of him as he drifts farther away before he just disappears under the water.

hosed up stuff.

i knew a guy who got eaten by a shark. didn't know him super well or anything but he sometimes worked weekends at an old job i had. he didn't jump off a boat though. sharks got him when he was diving on some island somewhere on holiday. he was missing for a while but they found his arm in a shark with his wedding ring on it and everything, very sad. his wife worked in the office for our company too.

it seems like a dumb idea because he got eaten by a shark, but if he had managed to fight the shark and wrestle it back onto the cruise ship it would have been a cool story

Should we maybe delete the video in the OP, since it sounds like this kid is very likely dead now and there's a distinct possibility that he died on-camera? :gonk:

Even if it's not graphic, posting video of a guy dying irl is a big no-no.

Why, it was obviously a correct thing to say. "Hi" or "Welcome" would have been completly wrong.

There's nothing in the video. A guy is in the water and swims for a few seconds and that's it.

I mean, do we really know he was eaten by the shark? Just because the shark was nearby doesn't mean it went for him. Maybe he just drowned, like someone drunk swimming in the ocean at night might do. Was probably just curious about the big splash. Kinda bigoted towards sharks to think it must of done something.

tbh I went on a cruise last year and had a pretty good time. But even with the unlimited booze package I never considered jumping off.

Although... we did sail into the Bermuda triangle and when I got back I had covid and abortion rights had been overturned. It's a thinker, really.

I didn't think it was a big deal but I took it down anyway. If a mod weighs in I'll throw it back up (like a shark does when it eats something indigestible)

Yeah but it shows him vanishing in the water before the camera pans away. We don't know if he's alive right now so for all we know it's still possible he went under and drowned at that moment.

Yeah probably best to ere on the side of caution at least until we know whether the dude lived or not. You never want to post video of a person dying, but the standard of what constitutes "dying" has gotten kinda muddy especially since the Ukraine thread started. With all the war footage that's been posted and people getting upset by it, it's best to just avoid posting anything where there's a greater-than-1% chance that it shows someone's final moments alive.

Its a funny story actually, the guy washed up on a private resort island shortly after and decided to hang out there for a week. Hes fine but his ex, daughter and friend Mary are PISSED at him for letting them think he died though.

He swam away from both the shark and the life preserver, guy was never gonna have the courage to fight a shark, let alone win.
