TV Is Good For Kids

Or that's what kids everywhere will be telling their parents after seeing this story:

11 year-old Aaron Perez was fishing with his father on Texas' Gulf of Mexico coast when he was attacked by a shark. Aaron credits a program seen on the Discovery Channel the day before with teaching him how to drive off the shark by punching it in the gills.

This is right up there with people who used CPR based on what they saw on the '70s series Emergency!, or who learned the Heimlich Maneuver from an episode of Hey Arnold. It might work, but I wouldn't want to rely on it.
