It goes without saying that a sandy beach is not the natural habitat for a shark. While most of us (at least I do) think that our life is in danger the moment we encounter a shark, one man saw past the predator's reputation and viewed it as being any other animal in need.

In the video you can see a man grab this flailing shark by the fin and try to drag it into the water. The shark's slick surface and powerful body makes the task rather difficult, but even with the risk of losing life and limb, the man was determined to rescue this dying creature. What did you think of this life-threatening, heroic act? We'd love to know if you've witnessed or performed similar acts of bravery.
