Watch: A Terrifying Moment When Shark Attacks Kayaker In Hawaii

No need to doubt this angler’s “big fish” story — he caught the terrifying moment on camera.

A enormous tiger shark decided to try a bite of his kayak while the fisherman was cruising on the coast of Oahu, Hawaii.

According to the BBC, Scott Haraguchi escaped unharmed after his very close encounter with one of the ocean’s largest predators.

“It was incredibly bad luck, but incredibly good luck to capture it,” he told local TV station KITV.
