THIS guy is lucky to be alive – but otherwise he has the worst luck imaginable, after a series of terrifying run-ins with deadly animals.

WHEN Dylan McWilliams was bitten by a shark in Hawaii on Thursday, it meant he had been bitten by a shark, a bear and a rattlesnake — all in less than four years.

“I don’t know,” Mr McWilliams told the Honolulu Star-Advertiseron Friday. “I’m either really lucky or really unlucky.”

Not surprisingly, the 20-year-old from Grand Junction says he spends a lot of time outdoors.

In Thursday’s attack, about 50m from Shipwreck’s Beach off Poipu, Mr McWilliams suffered deep cuts to one of his legs, but the injury wasn’t life-threatening, reports Fox News.

“The scariest part was swimming back,” he told the news outlet, adding that he was hoping the shark wouldn’t continue following the trail of blood from his leg.

The leg wound required seven stitches, the Star-Advertiser reported.

Last July, McWilliams told the paper, he received nine staples in his scalp after a nearly 140kg bear invaded his Colorado campsite.

“The bear grabbed the back of my head and started pulling me and I was fighting back as best as I could,” he told Hawaii News Now. “It dropped me and stomped on me a little bit, and I was able to get back to the group and they scared it away.”

As for the rattlesnake, that encounter occurred about three-and-a-half years ago in Utah, Mr McWilliams told the Star-Advertiser.

Luckily, he took in only a small amount of venom, so he was only briefly ill afterwards, he told the newspaper.

“My parents are grateful I’m still alive,” he said.
