The camera was rolling when a shark breached a diver's cage on a photography trip, leaving the diver trapped with the massive creature inside the small steel enclosure.
Coming to you from Gabe and Garrett, this terrifying video captures the moment a Great White shark breached a diver's cage during an expedition in 2016. The crew was throwing bait to the shark to bring it closer for photographers to shoot it, when it moved for a piece of bait and hit the side of the cage, wedging itself in the bars. After that, it began trying to extricate itself, but since sharks cannot swim backwards, all it could do was flail and attempt to swim forwards, at which point it broke through and into the cage where Ming Chan was. Luckily, Chan was able to drop through the bottom of the cage while the shark escaped through the top. Although the shark was bleeding, the crew was able to find it again later in the day and confirmed that it had not been permanently injured, thankfully. Chan was also uninjured by the incident and was even back in the water the next day. Nonetheless, the encounter made for quite the heart-stopping video!
