Darcy Russell and her cousin Andrew were just a mile off the coast of Port MacDonnell, South Australia, when they recorded this terrifying footage of a 15 foot Great White shark biting their boat and slamming it with it’s tail.
The video shows the beast circling the boat, just before it decided to take a nibble off the boat’s motor. The cousins say that the shark was circling them for maybe 10 minutes, but with the fright they were experiencing, it felt like a lot longer!
Another Great White jumped into the boat of a 73-year-old man off the coast of New South Wales just a month before this incident, but only grazed the skin on his forearm. The otherwise unharmed pensioner was able to call the Coastguard for help.
