Shark Attack: Aaron Perez

In the summer of '04, a giant bull shark chomped 11-year-old Aaron Perez's arm. Luckily for Aaron, he once watched a Discovery Channel program about how to survive an attack. Luckily for Discovery Channel, Aaron did survive, giving DC an excuse for a self-congratulatory documentary.
