Generally when you see a giant shark swimming towards you, the last thing you want to do is jump in the water. However, when these guys saw an injured ten foot long hammerhead shark floundering near this Florida beach, they jumped into action.

Surrounded by beach-goers with cameras in hand, these folks quickly worked to rescue the injured beast. Logan Lakos, one of the rescuers, knew hammerhead sharks are generally uninterested in attacking humans, so he was comfortable stepping in after realizing it was injured. When the shark was stabilized, the makeshift rescue team worked to remove the two large fishing hooks lodged in its mouth.


Once the hammerhead was freed from the hooks, it was clearly confused — it initially tried to jump towards shore.

Logan jumped into action again, guiding the shark away from the onlookers on the beach and out to the deep sea. The shark appeared to have no further injuries and once it found its bearings, was able to swim away successfully.

What would you do in this situation? Would you jump in? Or would you stay on land? Let us know in the comments below!
