Shark shock: Boat crew startled when mako jumps on board

28 Juillet 2017

Scary moments occurred on a fishing vessel off the coast of Long Island earlier this month when a large mako shark jumped out of the water and became stuck on board.

THIS is the shocking moment a huge shark becomes trapped on a fishing boat - and thrashes around in desperate bid to be free.

The video which was shot by a member of the crew was first published July 28 by Newsflare, and the crew can be heard exclaiming and debating as to what to do when the shark appeared on the boat. The shark's mouth can be seen getting bloodied after it tried to bite off the metal railings to release itself.

The parents had requested that they be allowed to take Charlie home so that he could die while with his family. At a hearing Wednesday, the judge said Charlie will end his days in a hospice.

The Long Island fishing charter crew members were eventually able to lower the shark back into the water. Sharks of this breed have been known to jump into fishing boats on more than one occasion.

Fox 26 reports that Capt. Don Law was at the helm when this freakish incident occurred on July 6, and that the shark was estimated to weigh about 180 pounds.

At one point, Don made reference to iconic shark film Jaws, saying: "We're gonna need a bigger boat!" Because of the Mako shark's intense speed, it is a formidable ocean predator.
