Great White Attacks Boat Carrying Shark Fishermen in South Africa
According to the report, the inflatable boat was about three miles off the coast of Strandfontein when the attack occurred.
The great white was latched on the boat for about sixty seconds and when it let go, the boat had a large gash with a few embedded teeth.
The crew of the boat immediately headed for shore and all aboard safely arrived.
