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.

Sharks almost never attack humans, unless you piss them off, people lack meat.

Was the volume of the audio of the screaming surfer enhanced? I have a feeling the people filming the video couldn't hear the guy.

so they guy on the surfboard is the fisherman??? he was fishing for sharks off a surfboard! A SURFBOARD. wow. so much stupid soo little time. I wish the shark had attacked the fisherman and not the guy swimming. It would have taught him a lesson. The swimmer needs to send his medical bills to the dumbass fisherman.

The complete a-holes that shot this video should have criminal charges brought against them, because it should be illegal to be so f**ng stupid. I cant believe the laughter and the stupid comments. How about getting some help! Karma is a bitch and I hope they are shark bait someday. Bunch of a**holes.

Is it legal to chum that close to a shoreline? Shark was pissed. I'd be mad too if someone gave me food then tried to kill me in my own home.
