How to Reduce Your Risk of a Stingray Attack
There is a stingray alert after a rash of attacks. Fifteen swimmers at one beach in San Diego were stung by the rays. Stingrays bury themselves in sand, often in shallow water, and sting when someone inadvertently steps on them. Pono Barnes of the Los Angeles County Fire Department tells Inside Edition the best way to avoid a stingray attack is by using the “stingray shuffle.” Barnes said that you should keep both feet in contact with the sand and just shuffle forward into the water.
