Name: John Smith
Place of residence: Kota Kinabalu
Creature: Marbled stingray
Location of incident: Shark's cave, Layang Layang, Malaysia
Date of incident: May 2009
"I was filming marble stingrays at 30 meters at the beginning of the dive when one kept circling me whilst I hovered about a meter off the sea bed. On the marble ray's third circle I must have got too close to it and it must have felt trapped by other divers around me. The next thing I knew I just felt its barb puncture my stomach. For some reason that morning I chose to wear a wetsuit... had I not made that decision the marble ray barb would have almost certainly penetrated deeper and envenomated me making the whole episode much more serious. As it turned out I was taken to hospital where they washed the puncture wound gave me two stitches and left me with a small scar on my stomach as a reminder not to get too close to those beautiful but dangerous creatures."
