Great White

Shark Attack

Insane Video

7/6/2014 6:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

070614_great_white_launch_v2
A great white shark attacked a swimmer in Manhattan Beach CA and it was all caught on video.

The 7-foot shark was struggling on the wrong end of a fishing line near the pier. Shortly before the attack, the fisherman tried in vain for 40 minutes to reel the shark in ... the shark was agitated when some long- distance swimmers unwittingly crossed its path.

As video rolled ... the great white attacked one of the swimmers. People on the pier where the video was shot initially didn't realize someone was injured but soon thereafter it became apparent and they screamed at the people in the water to swim for their lives.

The attack victim sustained moderate injuries to his torso and is in stable condition.

The fisherman eventually cut the line.

TMZ Sports got this video shot last month of a 6-foot great white near the shoreline of Manhattan beach, as paddle boarders circled it.

Fine the fisherman so much money that he won't be irresponsible anymore. He endangered the guys life for as long as he possibly could until the people yelled at him to cut the shark loose. That fisherman is irresponsible and should pay for all the medical bills.

Typical Manhattan Beach yuppie snobs filming, laughing at tragedy. The South Bay use to be a great area and real people but now as bad as West LA.

They laughed because they thought he was scared. Once they realized he was in trouble, they stopped.

Whether the knew the shark bit the swimmer or not, most people would not laugh when seeing the dorsal fin sticking out of the water when swimmers are nearby.

After living in Cali for several years, I'm not surprised they would laugh. Typical of the people around there. I know they didn't realize someone was hurt while they were laughing, but it's still not something to be laughed about.

I have always wondered who would win in a fight a great white shark or Kris Kardashian.
