South African surfers rescue baby great white shark

A group of surfers and lifeguards last month rescued a baby great white shark which was being smashed onto rocks by waves.

"My friends and I came out of the water after a morning surf, then we noticed a baby shark struggling by the rocks," said the filmer.

"After a few failed attempts to get the shark back out to sea from the rocks, we decided to take the shark to a better location," he added.

The video shows the lifeguards placing the small great white onto the filmer's surfboard and then quickly carrying to a different spot for release.

"We eventually got the shark back out to sea and saw it swim away," the filmer said.

The clip was flimed in Victoria Bay on March 23.
