Video: Man Jumps off a Ship and Lands Next to Shark

Jul 27, 2018

Talking about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. A video surfaced on the social media of a man jumping from the ship into the water when a shark appears next to him. Within seconds after he jumps off the ship a tiger shark appeared out of nowhere just a few feet from the man. You can hear people onboard screaming at him that there is a shark in the water. From the video it looks like the shark is going for his leg, fortunately, the man escapes unharmed. After the close encounter, the terrified man manages to swim to safety and climb a ladder. You can just imagine the horror when he saw the big tiger shark. 

By the lowered ladder, which you can see at the end of the video, we assume that the ship’s crew was participating in a boat drill. Aldo very rare, sometimes as part of the ships, emergency drills crew are trained to jump off the vessel so they can be prepared in an event of a real emergency. However unlike on the cruise ships, emergency drills crew are required to jump with their lifejackets on, unlike in this video where the man is not wearing one. There is no information where was this video filmed or the name of the ship. 

Here is the video uploaded by Hamad Al-Nassr from Doha.
