IT’S a horrible moment when a great white shark attacks a film crew’s boat and tries to pull them underwater.
The crew was trying to capture an elusive megatraper when they were attacked by a group of ferocious sharks.
Wanting to see the foraging sites of mega-sharks near Stewart Island, New Zealand, the men tried to tie the camera to a shark fin that they lured.
But their excitement soon turned to panic when a hungry beast rushed at them dirty and then at the rope that connected them to the larger ship, taking three blows to gnaw through it.
The beast then pulls the boat before diving into the ocean with a cord in its jaws.
The giant predator eventually releases and seems to be affected in just a few minutes.
When cameraman Andy Casagrande explains what just happened, someone shouts, “Andy! Andy! Andy!” and points to a shark floating nearby.
The beast circles under the boat before attacking the buoy attached to the raft, sending the crew into a panic.
“Holy devil!” Shouts one of them.
“Under the boat, rushing under the boat,” says another man on board.
The second shark joins, and both begin to accidentally bury themselves in the boat.
“I don’t think it’s such a brilliant idea, you know,” a voice is heard. “I don’t think we can have a boat there. I really can’t.”
But luckily the sharks eventually give up and the crew escapes intact.
According to shark activists, the predators might have thought the film crew had food.
They said sharks are becoming more comfortable near boats due to diving into the cage Alphabet news.
