What sells a story better than sharks?

Apparently, people being naked does. According to a St. Petersburg Times story a woman had to be rescued from the water and a man came ashore, both au natural, at Fort De Soto.

A statement from the park supervisor about the couple being “lucky, considering the number of bull sharks in the area because of tarpon season,” goes almost completely unnoticed do to the focus of the article on the couple’s nakedness. According to the individuals involved, the woman fell overboard from a boat and the man jumped into save her. They told the authorities they took their clothes off, so that they could swim.

For the record, despite being a shark diving enthusiast, I do not recommend skinny-dipping with bull sharks at night. :)
