Update: Though this report appeared on the MINA site, it now appears to be a fake.

A Serbian man has rescued the Egyptian tourist season by getting himself so drunk he jumped off a high dive and inadvertently killed a shark.

Before it was murdered by the flying Serbian drunk, the shark had injured four tourists and killed another at the famed Egyptian resort Sarm El Sheikh. The besotted leaping Slav was dubbed "Shark El Sheikh" by the Egyptian press. But he also goes by Dragan Stevic, according to the Macedonian International News Agency.

Stevic doesn't remember killing the shark. He was too drunk. He's now in hospital with alcohol poisoning. But the shark slaying was witnessed by Stevic's drinking buddy. After a long night of boozing, Stevic decided he needed a swim. So he walked onto the beach and spotted a diving board.

"Dragan climbed on the jumping board, told me to hold his beer, and simply ran to jump,” the drinking buddy says. “Dragan jumped high and plunged down to the sea, but didn’t make as much splash as we thought he would."

That's because he landed on a shark.

The drunken Serb came down on the shark's head. And the shark died. But the Serb didn't realize this. After swimming to shore, Sevic complained that the water wasn't very soft. And he said his ankle hurt.

As Sevic recovers from his sprained ankle – and the alcohol poisoning – the Sarm El Sheikhh has given him a free vacation. It's a reward for the drunken accidental fish killing exploits he's unable to remember.

Next year, he can come back and do it again. ®
