Women losing their minds for the best picture is no surprise, and a U.S. woman who attempted the same had to be hospitalized. When Jamie Bisceglia saw two fishermen who had successfully hooked an octopus in the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, her photographer's insticts woke up.
The 45-year-old woman placed the octopus on her face and thought of getting the best click for her photo contest but the stunt went awry right away as octopus bit her. Kiro 7 reported her as saying, "It was a photo contest in the derby. So, crazy me, hindsight now and looking back, I probably made a big mistake."
The octopus grabbed her with its suckers and bit her. She was finally able to remove the critter after a struggle but was in continuous pain for the next half an hour. "The tentacles were squirming in my ear, my nose, it was just playing with me on my face. And then all of a sudden its beak entered my chin and my eyes popped open wide and they could all see that I was getting attacked, and the photos are taken at the moment it was attacking me," she said, according to Fox News.
Bisceglia had to be hospitalized for two days. She told Fox News, "I could tell I couldn't swallow properly and I could tell when I opened my eyes it was kind of blurry. The left side of my face, my throat, my glands were swollen and it felt my left side of my face was paralysed."
News reports said she was still in pain and on antibiotics.
Twitter has criticized her action of messing with a wild creature.
