Florida Beachgoer Brings An Injured Hammerhead Shark To Shore To Save Its Life

July 24, 2015

Two brothers fought to save an injured hammerhead shark on the Destin, Florida shoreline as beachgoers watched in amazement.

The video was uploaded to YouTube with the following caption:

"I filmed this heroic display as he dragged the injured 10 ft. hammerhead to shore. The shark was pulled to shore and we realized it had several deep sea fishing hooks in its mouth as well as steel fishing line tangled in and around its head. My brother, 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."

All of the distress and yelling heard in the background was caused by a natural fear from certain individuals and lack of understanding the situation, as well as the behaviors of hammerhead sharks. Once bystanders realized they were trying to help the shark, they did what they could to help.
