A Serbian man is being hailed as a hero after killing—accidentally—a shark that had been terrorizing an Egyptian resort town. Dragan Stevic was black-out drunk when he vanquished the predator that has killed one beachgoer and injured four. He went with friends to the beach after a long night of drinking, announced that he would take a jump off a diving board, and the rest is history, the Macedonian International News Agency reports.

"Dragan climbed on the jumping board, told me to hold his beer, and simply ran to jump. There was no time for me to react or to try to stop him, he just went for it," a friend who was there explained. As luck would have it, Stevic landed right on the shark's head—it had likely been lurking in the shallow waters waiting for a new victim—killing it instantly. When he returned to his friends, he complained that he had twisted his ankle because the water "wasn't soft." The kicker: Stevic is currently in the hospital ... for alcohol poisoning.
