Shark Lands on Fishing Boat

A group of people on a fishing charter off Whitianga, New Zealand, were startled and stunned when a large mako shark leaped out of the water and landed on the front of the boat, video uploaded on November 6 shows.

Footage sent to Storyful by Ryan Churches, the owner of Churchys Charters NZ, shows the moments right after a shark lands on the front of his fishing boat. The shark was unharmed.

Churches, the owner of the boat, told Storyful that he and his group of customers were searching for kingfish when a mako shark ended up taking the bait. Churches said that after being hooked, the shark decided to leap out of the water as a sort of “aerial display,” which landed the creature in their boat.

The New Zealand Herald reported that “the shark managed to wriggle free” unharmed and that Churches and his passengers “were counting their blessings he didn’t land on the back of the boat.”

“He got away safe. There’s nothing much we could do. We can’t go up the front to go near it because they go absolutely bonkers.

“We dropped the anchor down a little bit because it seemed to be holding it in place [on the boat]. He went absolutely bonkers again and pushed himself through the bow rail and slid back into the water."

I thought this.

There was a woman in HI on a whale watching boat getting hit repeatedly pretty hard by a large whale. She called 911. ROTFLMAO
