Was this video which claimed to show shark attack on glamour model Molly Cavalli a clever fake?
A video of a model being attacked by a shark is making waves on the Internet.
Molly Cavalli, the adult entertainer, was filming a video promo off the Florida coast when she claims she was bitten by a Lemon shark.The stunt was in promotion of the adult webcam service Cam Soda. The clip of the attack has since been viewed on YouTube more than 7 million times.
The viral video shows her being lowered into the waters in a cage and seconds later she screams in pain. The clip then shows what appears to be blood in the water as she is pulled out crying with what looks like a bloody gash on her ankle.
Just seconds after being placed in the water, she can be heard letting out a yelp and then grabbing hold of her leg as the Lemon shark allegedly struck.
She can then be seen rising above the waters grasping for breath and scrambling to get back on board as what appeared to be blood stains the sea around her.
As Cavalli is helped back onto the boat by cameramen a trickle of what appeared to be blood can be seen dripping across the crying model’s thigh.
Cavalli took to Instagram to address the attack saying: “Thanks for your well wishes guys. I’m totally fine. It’s not as bad as it seems. Im healing quickly. It was still an amazing experience. Much love to my @camsoda team for taking good care of me. ????????????”
“I want to thank my fans for their outpouring of support as I heal my foot following the shark bite. Luckily it only required 20 stitches. I’m fine. It’s not that bad. I had a great experience anyway and now I have a story to tell forever.”
However, a veteran shark diver is claiming the viral video featuring a porn star being attacked by a ten foot shark was faked for publicity. He claims the adult film actress was not attacked, but instead the stunt was staged to get her name in the news, RealClearLife.com reported.
Lemon sharks typically prey on fish, squid, rays, crustaceans, and some seabirds. The International Shark Attack File has only 10 registered incidents of humans being bitten by lemon sharks. None of the attacks were fatal. Cavalli has not yet responded to the allegation.
