All sorts of things can go wrong out at sea: you could get caught up in a storm, discover a hole in your boat, or suffer from seasickness. Even more terrifyingly, you could have a close encounter with a great white shark, as a group of fishermen in the US found out on Monday.
The men were fishing about 30 miles off the coast of Manasquan Inlet, New Jersey, when they were paid a visit by a massive shark, more than half the size of their boat.
In a video taken from the boat, the grey figure can be seen lurking ominously below the water, edging closer and closer.
As the calm among the fishermen rapidly evaporates, the shark then surges above the water and rips the bait from the vessel, Jaws-style.
A this point, they absolutely and understandably lose their collective shit: “HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! OH MY GOD! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! OH MY GOD! Dude, that was the coolest fucking thing I’ve ever seen! Oh my god, dude! Dude! Holy shit! Dude, that’s insane! Once in a lifetime, man!”
