Horrifying Meat Eating Marine Creatures Eat Into Teenager in Melbourne Beach

The teen, named Sam Kanizay, was at the Brighton's Dendy Street Beach where he was playing soccer with his friends.
When Sam's family couldn't get his legs to stop bleeding, they went to the hospital, where even the nurses and doctors couldn't confirm what had happened.
The teenager has described standing for about 30 minutes before feeling pins and needles around his ankles, then shaking off what he initially took to be sand.
To see what was in the water, Kanizay's father went back to the water and dropped in raw meat and captured the creatures in a vial.
"Whenever he will move, it will open up those wounds, so I think there'll be some time, probably, on the couch when he gets home".
"They're scavengers who'll clean up dead fish and feed on living tissue", he said.
"Mistaking amphipoda as "sea lice" is a perpetual problem", said Norenburg in an email with National Geographic.
The leading theory seemed to be that Sam had inadvertently become lunch for hungry sea lice, also known as marine isopods, a group of crustaceans that are the marine versions of slaters and pill bugs that people might be familiar with from their gardens.
"This was a first, so that's why I query whether it's sea lice or some other creature that have caused the issue".
"No open wound as far as I know, but it happened because he stood still in the water for a long time", wrote Reina, who suggested that Sam didn't realize the creatures were chewing on his feet and legs.
"Amphipods are sometimes referred to as "sea fleas"," Museums Victoria said. Had Kanizay been moving through the water, it's unlikely the amphipods would have been likely to stay attached to his skin.
She said it was possible the bugs contained an anti-coagulant similar to that produced by leeches, which explained the inability to stem the flow of blood.
"Sand fleas only cause minor biting and itching", he said.
She said the other four defendants facing charges in the same criminal case were in a separate room when the incident happened. They were dubbed the "Grand Theft Auto" gang by Russian media over apparent similarities with the ultra-violent video game.
