Local Venice Beach Surfers Rescue Baby Great White Shark

Baby Great White shark rescue at Venice Beach

(VENICE BEACH, Calif.) - A baby great white shark caught with a fishing pole from the Venice Beach pier was brought to shore by local surfers, and one actually removed the hook and placed the shark in the ocean, where it made its way back out to sea.

The video is incredible, and it is a fact that very few such occurrences have ever been recorded. A man who has not been identified actually places his hand inside the mouth of the baby Great White in order to pull the hook out.

Experts said this is one of the reasons that the shark which was "pretty beat up" from the event, stood a realistic chance of survival after literally being delivered back into the sea.

Several people assisted in this unique spur of the moment rescue project that was probably the last thing anyone anticipated at Venice that day, which is not exactly known as a shark zone among beach cities in California.

The LA Times reports that the shark saving scene was recorded on video by Elvia Van Es of Venice Beach, who used a camera phone to snag the now viral video. Do be advised that the YouTube video contains graphic language.
