Shark Attack 3-13-2014 in the CAYMAN ISLANDS

For licensing/usage please contact licensing@jukinmedia.com Caribbean Reef Shark encounter in the CAYMAN ISLANDS. Just east of Frank Sound. We were Lion Fish Culling when the shark came out of no ware. It scared the crap out of me. Filmed on my GoPro 3 camera. We were in about 70′ of water when the shark encounter occurred.

This scuba diver was fishing for invasive lion fish (a good thing) in the Caymans. The scent of the blood attracted this savvy predator. Check out how this diver fends off this aggressive shark. The diver has also stated this experience will not keep him from the water. So….what would you do if you were in his shoes?
