As Karlson came closer to record the scene, he noticed the octopus swimming quickly towards him and the animal threw its tentacles at him and his daughter before retreating.
The man, who was hit in the arm and the back of the head, swam back to the coast in pain. On a social network, Karlson wrote: “he (octopus) decided that my daughter and I deserved a beating! Later, I discovered your home among a crab graveyard“.
