Fisherman catches shark with human body parts in it

This is an older story that I just came across but through it was too crazy not to share. A fisherman caught a shark and found a man's body inside - when the shark unexpectedly burped up a foot.

 

***WARNING: The squeamish are advised not to scroll to the bottom of this post ***

Humphrey Simmons, who had been fishing with friends Keith Ferguson and Stanley Bernard on Saturday, suddenly caught an "unusually heavy" Tiger shark on his line.

As soon as the shark reached the surface, Simmons' friend, Bernard, shot him several times in the head. And then something gross happened.

From the Tribune:

“We tied the rope around his tail fin, and pulled him towards the boat. We were going to cut the hook out of his mouth and let him go when he regurgitated a human foot — intact from the knee down. It was now about 10am.”

As soon as they saw the foot, Simmons says, and smelled the "stink" coming from inside the shark's "huge" belly, they knew they had to bring the shark to shore.

"We thought that there might be more bodies inside."

There weren't. There was just one - a body without a head. The body was unidentified, UNTIL NOW.

Now, the body has been identified (it's the body of a missing sailor).

Scroll down for the gruesome photos.
