Three women were caught in a so-called ultimate stingray photobomb, as shown in the photo below, and is now going viral after it became funny enough to those who have seen it, which was later confirmed to be taken at Stingray City in the Cayman Islands, a British overseas territory located in Caribbean Sea.
“I see your stingray photobomb and raise you!” a Reddit user named epic676 wrote on Wednesday, September 26, 2012, along with the picture of the three women caught by surprise when a “huge stingray” suddenly appeared from behind and joined their photo moment in the waters about three feet high.
Apparently, the funny stingray photobomb immediately became popular at Reddit and attracted tons of comments, upon seeing the faces of the women who was scared with the sudden appearance of the stingray and were not able to realize at once it was not real, and a man is behind the “stingray.”
“Oh God, that made me laugh so hard I have tears in my eyes.” A commentator wrote, while some of them agreed that this is the ultimate stingray photobomb of all time. There are also those who said they have been to Stingray City and the background seems to resemble the famous place.
Later, New York Daily News confirmed that this stingray photobomb was taken at Stingray City and identified the three women as Sarah Bourland, Natalie Zaysoff, and Kendall Harlan, who visited the place five years ago. At that time, they were college sophomores at Texas Christian University.
“The stingray made a sucking sound. He was trying to breathe in water but all he got was air. We all freaked out and the photographer took the picture at the right moment. It was perfect!” Bourland was quoted telling the paper, admitting that they initially had no idea that the tour guide could scare them to death.
Bourland added that they did not also know that someone took a photo of their ‘scariest moment’ until the photographer showed it to them, noting that she immediately bought it and has dreamed of getting photo featured on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” which was already been featured on ABC‘s “Good Morning America.”
