    News station KIRO came up with the report that suggests that the lady named Jamie Bisceglia was so much excited to beg the winning prize at a fishing derby Friday in Tacoma Narrows that she posed with a small octopus on her face.

    While realizing that it was a “big mistake” she stated that “It was a photo contest in the derby. So, crazy me, hindsight now and looking back, I probably made a big mistake”.

    The photo shows Bisceglia with stretched arms and a wide grin on her face. The octopus on her face seems relaxed with her tentacles are hooked on Bisceglia’s face. The creature during the photoshoot bitten her twice and eventually passed the venom in her body.

    The Intense Pain And Swelling

    Bisceglia stated that “It was a really intense pain when it went inside and it just bled, dripping blood for a long time”. The lady bears the pain and swelling on her face for two days but later she rushed to doctors for the cure.

    She revealed how much intense the pain is that she is suffering. “I’m still in pain,” she said. “I’m on three different antibiotics. This can come and go, the swelling, for months, they say.”

    She Never Wants To Do It Again

    Though the incident made her say that “This was not a good idea”. “I will never do it again,” she added. Well, I think no one will ever try it even if they hadn’t faced such extreme suffering.
