A video of a white shark coming too close to a fishing boat has taken the internet by storm and it is the scariest thing that you’ll see today. A family out for fishing in Cape Cod Bay in Massachusetts, USA, were left stunned when they had a very close encounter with a white shark. The video going viral on the internet shows the group fishing on a boat when the shark leaps out of water to snatch the fish, which the family had caught while fishing.
According to The Guardian, Doug Nelson, who filmed the video, said that the shark gave them a "pretty good scare." One of the little boys standing close to a woman was taken aback seeing the big fish diving so close.
The video was posted on Twitter by Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, an organisation that works on great white shark research and conservation. The caption of the post read as, ''Incredible footage today from Doug Nelson of Franklin, MA fishing aboard the Columbia out of Rock Harbor in Orleans. @MA_Sharks.''
