Heh, Earth is readying bio-weapons against the aggressors. Be ready for clouds of razor toothed insects roaming the suburbs and little fishies who can strip the meat from bone in seconds.

FUN times!

Don't know why they are calling them sea fleas...they are bloody sea lice.....and they bite living things all the time.....just not usually this severely. Must have been a wild pack of lice....as hungry as a dingo near a baby.

In all seriousness.....they are sea lice. Google it.

I took your advice and googled it and there is a difference between sea flea's and sea lice. In this incident it was sea fleas as determined by Museum marine scientist Dr Genefor  Walker-Smith.

His toes are ok and looks like its just affected on top of his feet and round his ankles. Odd.


Not really, think about your feet in the sand at the beach, parts of your feet are submerged, and the longer i stand there the lower i goooooo

Freaky case! If it's actually something so common, why hasn't anyone seen a case like this before? If it's new behavior, then why? If it's something else, what???

Very creepy! Hope he recovers fully, with no complications.

From what I've heard, Sea Lice bites usually just leave itchy bumps, but since this kid was standing near a rotting fish, which Sea Lice feed on, for a little while, it was worst than usual.

Saw this kid on tv yesterday.
He said his feet were so cold that he didn't even feel it at all. Not until his feet warmed up later, after he got home, then it started to hurt!

Just been looking for info on how this lad, Sam, was doing with his recovery. No news news from what i could find, but i did find a photo that wasnt seen here at the time that we wanted to see, and thats the cleaned up feet. From this article



There is also a bit more background story about the incedent:

"Sam Kanizay’s legs felt sore after playing a game of football on Saturday, so he decided to soak them at the beach. About 30 minutes later, the 16-year-old walked out of the water with his feet and ankles covered in what looked like hundreds of little pin holes that were bleeding profusely. Upon returning home, his parents promptly took him to the hospital."

I'm thinking he had a rash (hives rash or sweat rash whatever), scratched it or continual rubbing from socks to make it weep or start to weep/bleed, then the critters were in the right place for some feasting.

Thing is though, he cant be the only 16 year old to play football and then dip his sore and sweaty feet in the sea, so why hasnt it happened before, and might we see it again soon?
