Huge tiger shark grabs a fisherman’s boat off the coast of Hawaii

The New York Post drew attention to the video of the fisherman from the GoPro camera.

The author of the video, Scott Haraguchi, was fishing from a kayak off the coast of the Hawaiian island of Oahu, while recording everything that happened on the camera, as if on a car recorder. The moment was recorded when a predatory fish approached the boat at high speed. The shark crashed into the fishing boat with force and grabbed it with its teeth for a second, almost turning it over, describes the video edition.

The fisherman managed to keep his balance and fought off the predator, shoving her with his foot. After that, he shouted at a colleague using obscene language: “Tiger shark! Tiger shark, Randy!”

The man admitted that, only after watching the recording at home, he realized how lucky he was.

“It all happened so fast. I instinctively pulled my left foot out of the water to protect myself from being hit, and then pushed the shark’s head away. If I were asked to repeat this even without the shark, I don’t think I would have had the flexibility,” he said.

The man was not injured from the attack of a predatory fish, but there were marks from her teeth on his boat.

He assumed the shark attacked him because he mistook the boat for a seal, as he later spotted one in the same area.

The fisherman, who miraculously escaped death, also admitted that this incident reminded him of the fragility of life.

“I realized that life is short and our time on earth is limited. Make the most of it and be kind to people,” Haraguchi said in an interview with KITV4.

Tiger sharks are found off the coast in tropical and subtropical waters of the oceans. These predatory fish grow up to five and a half meters in length and pose a fairly serious threat to humans. Only off the coast of the state of Hawaii, three or four attacks of a dangerous cannibal killer are recorded annually.
