Two Florida bros rescue a stranded hammerhead shark

Warning: Not recommended. If you see stranded marine life, call your local fish and wildlife authority, or ask a marine biologist.

This guy's brother worked hard "to save an injured hammerhead shark on the Destin, Florida shoreline and bravely took it to safety away from the public," says the guy who uploaded this video to YouTube.

The 10-foot-long hammerhead shark was stranded on Florida beach, and the men removed several large deep sea fishing hooks fishing hooks from its mouth. They then dragged the shark back out to sea, but it appears to remain disoriented, and wanders back to shore.


My brother, once realizing it was injured, swam out to bring it to shore away from people still in the water. I filmed this heroic display as he dragged the injured 10 ft. hammerhead to shore. The shark was pulled to shore and we realized it had several deep sea fishing hooks in its mouth as well as steel fishing line tangled in and around its head. My brother, along with help from bystanders worked to get the hooks out and save the dying shark. My brother was able to pull the shark into deeper water until it was able to swim away safely in an attempt to avoid further injuring itself or the public.

All of the distress and yelling heard in the background were caused by a natural fear from certain individuals and lack of understanding the situation as well as the behaviors of hammerhead sharks. Once bystanders realized we were trying to help the shark they quickly did what they could to help
