Lifeguard at Cocoa Beach Rescues Shark

by BeachHunter on May 20, 2013

Today a 5 foot shark stranded itself in shallow water on Cocoa Beach. Lifeguard Zach Cooney saw the shark and was concerned that with all the people gathering around, it might feel cornered and start to bite people. So he did what no one else probably would have done: he grabbed it by the tail and dragged it into deeper water.

Speculation is that the power boat races offshore spooked the shark into shallow water. You can read the story on Fox News Orlando.

The video above was filmed by Sam Cappadonia. There were lots of people shooting video with smartphones, so there will probably be other videos popping up on YouTube.

Thanks to Savanna Harper for the heads-up on this story.
