In 2006, there were 61 shark attacks in the entire world. Some say being attacked may be lucky because of the rarity of shark attacks. I'm going out on a limb here and guessing that LA musician/sound engineer Aaron Finley wouldn't agree with that, though. Aaron got munched on on October 29th near Wailea Beach, in Maui. The good news is that Aaron came out of it alive, and still has all his limbs. The bad news is that he now has some pretty substantial medical costs that he cannot charge to his attacker. We're talking tens of thousands of $$$$$ here. And that, my friends, is where you come in. Pink Mochi, Patrick Park and Charlie Wadhams are all joining forces to raise money for the "Friends of Aaron Finley Fund.”
As if you need further incentive to contribute to this good cause, here's an account of what happened in Aaron's own words:
"I was thinking it's so nice to be out here in the ocean relaxing," said Finley, "Then... I felt something hit my leg really hard and then turned and saw this big gray thing swimming away and realized I'd just been bit," Finley, 32, said from his hospital bed in Wailuku, where a 6-inch, half-moon-shaped gash on his left calf served as a reminder of the encounter. "It felt like a wave knocked me into a rock."
Enough said. See you on sunday!
