A blacktip shark appeared to attack an 8-year-old boy that was spearfishing in the Bahamas with his family.
A GoPro camera caught all the intense action as a young man was trying his hand at some spearfishing when a shark got way too close for comfort.
In the video, the shark can be seen charging the boy and then grabbing his spear when the young lad defended himself.
All’s well that ends well, as they say. While this is one 8-year-old that will never forget his trip to the Bahamas, he reacted well to the threat and came through it uninjured.
While there are multiple definitions of a shark attack, this example seems to be one, albeit a minor instance.
Now tell that to anyone who’s been bum-rushed by a shark.
