An Australian man caught and filmed the “critters” that attacked his son’s legs on a Melbourne beach on Saturday, August 5.
Jarrod Kanizay’s 16-year-old son, Sam, sat in the water at Brighton beach after playing sport and when he got out found that he had been bitten by the creatures leaving him with blood-soaked legs.
The teen was taken to hospital to stem the bleeding from what his father described as “pinprick bites”.
