Man Saves Injured Hammerhead Shark

When a Florida man sees a hammerhead shark behaving oddly, he grabs the shark by the tail and pulls it to shore to help it.

According to the YouTube posters, the two brothers were working to “save an injured hammerhead shark on the Destin, Florida, shoreline.”

In the video, one man, with help, pulls the 10-foot hammerhead into shallow water and holds it down to remove fish hooks and line wrapped around the shark’s head.

According to the poster, the man, “along with help from bystanders, worked to get the hooks out and save the dying shark. My brother was able to pull the shark into deeper water until it was able to swim away safely in an attempt to avoid further injuring itself or the public.”
