Two freedivers removed a hook from a shark’s mouth – video

A group of freedivers diving in Florida managed to capture an unusual image. The men spotted a shark with a fishing hook stuck in its mouth. Fortunately, they knew exactly what to do to help the animal and the whole incident was caught on camera.

While apnea diving in Florida waters, two men spotted a brown shark with a large hook stuck in its mouth. Without thinking too long, the men decided to help their sea friend and began the delicate action of removing the unwanted object from the shark’s mouth.

First, one of the freedivers began the process of calming the shark and distracting it so that his colleague could remove the hook without causing the animal too much stress or risking unpleasant repercussions.

As it turns out, the shark didn’t run into random people, but members of the “Shark Addicts Foundation” group. First, by rubbing the shark’s mouth, they calmed their patient, and then by arousing interest in a piece of fish meat, they distracted him enough to successfully perform the procedure of removing the hook. All of these procedures can be seen in the attached video.
