In 2017 An Australian Teen Was Bitten By Sea Fleas While Swimming Off The Coast Of Melbourne

Sam Kanizay was having a pretty normal day. But after a brief dip in the water to try and soothe his aching legs, he came back to his clothes to find that his legs were covered in blood. And when doctors examined him they were shocked to discover what had happened to the 16 year old.

Brighton is one of the most well-off suburbs of Melbourne and is known for its row of brightly colored beach huts. While it is home to some of Melbourne’s wealthiest residents, though, Sam Kanizay’s experience was more like something out of a horror movie.
