"I thought she was coming for me bro!" shark boat worker has close call with great white

This shark boat worker had an awfully close call with a shark when she lunged for some food.

The footage filmed in Mossel Bay in South Africa on November 10, shows the shark jumping out of the water while almost clipping the bait handler's leg as he lunges.

The man in the video can be heard saying “I thought she was coming for me bro!” to the Elton Polly the filmer.

“Close encounters happen often but that doesn’t mean they are any less exciting,” says Elton.
