Video of the Day
Shark Scares Fisherman Half To Death
April 12, 2013

This video has taken off online over the past day, and it's easy to see why.

The guy in it - Isaac Brumaghim - was reeling in a tuna a couple of miles off Hawaii's Oahu Island when a tiger shark leaped out of the water to go after his fish.

Based the video, it's thought the shark weighed about 400 to 500 pounds. And as you'd expect Brumaghim freaked out.

"It definitely was an adrenaline rush for me out there," he said afterward, according to Hawaii News Now. "Life and death right in front of you. It put some things into perspective."

Brumaghim is part of a group called 'Aqua Hunters' that promotes kayak fishing in Hawaii and the world. Incredibly, he stayed out on the water, and caught two more fish.

Check out the video from the Aqua Hunters YouTube channel. And stick around for the slo-motion shot around :55.

Oh, and just you know, he does swear. But really, who wouldn't.
