Owen Wilson revealed his older brother Andrew was attacked by a shark in Hawaii recently, but thankfully survived.
Andrew Wilson, the older brother to actors Owen and Luke, was bitten by a shark when he was surfing in Hawaii with friends.
The shark clamped down on his right foot but he managed to escape and swim back to shore.
Owen said he only heard about the incident when he texted Andrew to ask about a problem with his television and was shocked by his older brother’s response.
Owen told Jay Leno during his appearance on the show, “Just the other day I was sending a message to Andrew about some guy coming by to take a look at the TV.
“He sent back (a message saying), ‘Sounds good, I was bitten by a shark so I won’t be there.’ And he literally was bitten by a shark on his right foot. Can you imagine swimming and then feeling something clamp down and pull? He was OK, he had to get some stitches and everything.
“Actually the paramedics who came said he was more at danger (because his friends) had tied a BlackBerry (cell phone) cord around his ankle from cutting off the circulation on his foot. He’s so kind of stoic about it.”
