To say that the “Jackass” star known as “Poopies” struggled to film a “Shark Week” special is an understatement – a shark attacked him, and although he survived … it did. had a huge emotional impact.
Sean McInerney was bitten while attempting a dangerous stunt – a wakeboard jump over shark infested waters – for Discovery Channel’s collaboration with the guys from “Jackass”. It is clear from these images and Poopies own words that he came close to death in a terrifying way.
Poopies knows that for sure – watch him relive the scary ordeal he crossed while his jump was short and he landed in the shark pit. He says a Caribbean reef shark almost immediately grabbed his hand.
The poor guy collapsed crying remembering how he felt this would be the end for him.
Luckily, the nearby security medic has sacrificed his own safety, and Poopies is sure that’s the only reason he’s alive to tell the story.

He’s now battling a gnarled hand injury that seems to take a long time to heal – and the phrase “I jumped the shark” is one that Poopies won’t take lightly anymore.
