Shark divers off Gansbaai, South Africa, received a bigger thrill than they were expecting this week when a large great white ignored the dangling bait outside the cage and instead tried jamming its head through the steel bars. (Note: footage contains profanity.)
Bryan Plummer was on the boat and captured the footage, along with the reactions from others watching from the deck.
States Plummer in the video description: "Apologies for any profanity in the video. It was an out-of-control situation."
It's not clear how many divers were in the cage but a newlywed named Roger can be seen closest to the shark's head. Fortunately, he swam downward and avoided injury.
The shark eventually swam off.
