Jackass star Sean McInerney suffers horror shark bite while wakeboarding

Daily Star 12 July, 2021 - 01:13pm

Last Sunday the infamous Jackass gang got back together for a very special Shark Week on Discovery.

Sean McInerney, known as ‘Poopies,’ is one of the newest members of the crew and one of his stunts went dangerously wrong.

He attempted a wakeboard jump over shark-infested waters but failed to land.

Instead, he landed in a swarm of hungry sharks and got his hand bitten.

Jackass legend Steve-O said that tendons and arteries in Sean’s hand had to be reattached in surgery.

‘Poopies’, however, remains unfazed by the horrific accident and said: “I was in their living room, and it was dinnertime.”

He went down a ramp fell into the water and almost immediately the crew raced to get him out.

They attached a tourniquet to his injured hand and raced him to medical care.

Steve-O, real name Stephen Glover, initially said: “This was only one bite in one spot?

He later changed his mind and told Steve WillDoIt that Sean had been “mangled” and it was worse than it looked.

Perhaps a humbling reminder of the danger they inflict on themselves, Chris Pontius, another Jackass member said: “He would be f**king dead if they didn’t dive on him as fast as they did.

"Jesus, he got wrecked by a shark! For a Shark Week episode!

“It's a reminder that yeah, like, we are pushing it pretty hard. And this could happen, of course.”

He went on: “It's either, like, everything's okay or this happens. And hopefully, it's always everything's okay, everything's okay. But then... you know, this time it's not okay.”

Sean, aka ‘Poopies,’ seemed relatively okay as he said: “'I definitely got a degree in shark college there.

“I knew there was a chance I was going to get bit by a shark, but I didn't think it was going to happen.”

Viewers were in shock and awe, as is the norm for Jackass stunts.

One said: "'The new guy from the Jackass crew, named Poopies, got bit by a shark. Honestly, it was some really good content. and always deliver! #SharkWeek2021."

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services.

The TV star was filming for Shark Week when he fell from his board during the dangerous stunt before being pulled to safety.

Pictures show McInerney suffered a deep bite to this hand, and artery and tendon damage, after he was treated an onsite medical team.

Jackass star Steve-O said: "He would be f**king dead if they didn’t dive on him as fast as they did.

"Jesus, he got wrecked by a shark...for a Shark Week episode."

The Jackass crew had pushed the stunt a step further after McInerney successfuly wakeboarded over the sharks.

He was then launched from a ramp but failed to make the landing.

McInerney, known as "Poopies", said: "I definitely got a degree in shark college there."

"I don't blame the sharks at all. I mean, I was in their living room, and it was dinnertime."

Jackass star Chris Pontius added: "It’s a reminder that yeah, like, we are pushing it pretty hard. And this could happen, of course."

‘Jackass’ Shark Week Stunt Ends Exactly As You Think It Might – With a Shark Bite

Yahoo Entertainment 12 July, 2021 - 09:13am

Naturally, the crew worked their way up to the stunt. To start, Sean McInerney — known as Poopies on the show — wakeboarded across shark-infested waters, making it through unscathed. (Even after his body was doused in chum at the beginning of the show). So, to up the Jackassery, the guys decided to have Poopies attempt to jump the waters on his board.

Of course, he only made it a few feet off the ramp before landing in the water, which you can see on repeat in the gif below. And upon landing, things took a turn.

Splashing down in the water, Poopies is swarmed and bitten by one of the sharks on his arm and hand.

“Get him! Get him out!” someone is heard yelling off-camera.

“Tourniquet! Tourniquet!” another yells as medics attend to Poopies’ hand injury. Thankfully, the crew jumped into action and Poopies wasn’t seriously injured or maimed, though he did end up in a hand cast as a result.

A visibly shaken Chris Pontius added, “It’s a reminder that we are pushing it pretty hard.”

In a post-show interview, McInerney acknowledged that injury was a distinct possibility in the stunt, and that he understands why it happened. “I don’t blame the sharks at all. I mean, I was in their living room, and it was dinner time,” he said.

This isn’t the first time the men of “Jackass” have attempted shark-related stunts. In 2019, “Jackass” vet Steve-O used himself as live shark bait, literally shoving a fishing hook through his mouth so he could be reeled in. Aside from the hole created by the hook, he came out unharmed, after unintentionally kicking an approaching shark away.

When a new Jackass member tried his hand at the show’s infamous stunts during Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, he made a frighteningly memorable first impression. Sean McInerney, aka Poopies, was plunged into shark-infested waters as part of a stunt for Discovery’s summer series, but his daring act turned bloody fast when he was bitten by one of the animals circling below, ET Canada reports.

After a successful try at wakeboarding over the sharks’ home, the Jackass guys decided to take it up a notch, challenging Poopies to jump over the water off a ramp. The challenge proved a little too tricky though, and Poopies crashed into the water below when he couldn’t stick the landing. Right when he plunged in, a shark latched onto his arm, leaving him with injuries there and on his hand.

Thankfully, the Jackass crew had help close by. Poopies was quickly pulled from the water and onto the boat, where he was treated by a medical team. After his friend was injured, Jackass‘ Steve-O asked, “This was only one bite in one spot? And he’s not missing anything?” To his relief, Poopies’ injury was treatable, and the Jackass star escaped with everything intact.

In an interview taped after his injury, Poopies was shown kicking back with a drink, his arm wrapped up in a cast. “I knew there was a chance I was gonna get bit by a shark but I didn’t think it was gonna happen,” he said. When a producer offscreen asked if he was mad at the shark, he replied, “No, I don’t blame the sharks at all. I mean, I was in their living room, and it was dinner time.”

Jackass 'Shark Week' stunt ends badly after star gets bitten

NME 12 July, 2021 - 05:56am

A Jackass stunt for Discovery’s Shark Week has ended badly after Sean McInerney (aka Poopies) had his hand bitten by one of the creatures.

The Jackass Shark Week Special saw the group attempt a dangerous stunt as they literally tried to “jump the shark”, with McInerney wakeboarding over infested waters.

However, when he went over a ramp, the stuntman didn’t quite stick the landing and tumbled right into the water, subsequently getting bitten on the hand by the sharks.

Help immediately came as McInerney was lifted onto a boat, with Steve-O asking: “This was only one bite in one spot? And he’s not missing anything?”

“It’s a reminder that yeah, like, we are pushing it pretty hard. And this could happen, of course,” fellow star Chris Pontius further reflected. “It’s either, like, everything’s okay or this happens. And hopefully it’s always everything’s okay, everything’s okay. But then… you know, this time it’s not okay.”

in the end, McInerney only sustained a hand injury, and later admitted: “I knew there was a chance I was gonna get bit by a shark, but I didn’t think it was gonna happen.”

He also said he didn’t hold anything against the sharks, adding: “No, I don’t blame the sharks at all. I mean, I was in their living room, and it was dinner time.”

In other Jackass news, Steve-O recently asked for men to give away their pubic hair in order to create a Bigfoot costume, with a number turning up to donate.

The actor’s gross stunt also came after he managed to convince a doctor to paralyse him from the waist down for a Jackass 4 segment.

“I might have actually talked a doctor into dressing up as a clown so that he could put a four inch needle into my spine and inject me with a drug that would paralyse me from the waist down while I was sprinting and before all kinds of terrible shit happened to me,” Steve-O explained on YouTube.

The world's defining voice in music and pop culture since 1952.
