A family fishing in Cape Cod Bay in Massachusetts, USA, had a close encounter with a great white shark. Too close for comfort, as some are calling it. A video that has gone viral online shows the group fishing on a boat when the shark leaps out of water to snatch a fish they had caught.
According to The Guardian, Doug Nelson, who filmed the video, said that the shark gave them a "pretty good scare."Mr Nelson's son, Jack, can be seen on the video recoiling as the shark jumps out of water.
The video was posted on Twitter by Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, an organisation that works on great white shark research and conservation.
