If you’re planning a shark cage diving experience then best you wait till after to watch the video below of a great white shark break through the metal rail of a dive cage and end up inside with the diver. It thrashes around frantically before the crew managed to lift the top of the cage allowing the shark to escape. The diver was unhurt, but i’m guessing his wetsuit may be a little soiled.
Here’s the footage.
The explanation under the YouTube video in the Gabe And Garrett channel says:
“On a recent great white shark cage diving trip we experienced a very rare event, a shark breaching the side of the cage. What might appear to be an aggressive great white shark trying to attack the cage, this is not the case. These awesome sharks are biting at large chunks of tuna tied to a rope. When a great white shark lunges and bites something, it is temporarily blinded. They also cannot swim backwards. So this shark lunged at the bait, accidentally hit the side of the cage, was most likely confused and not able to swim backwards, it thrust forward and broke the metal rail of the cage. There was a single diver inside the cage.”
