A Lifetime Of Nope: Great White Shark Breaches Diving Cage With Man Inside

October 14, 2016


This is a video of a 13-foot great white shark that accidentally breaks into a diving cage and promptly freaks out and thrashes around until it finally manages to escape out the top. Did I mention there was a diver inside at the time? That must have been exciting. Hey -- all the fish shit in the ocean, why not you too?

"What might appear to be an aggressive great white shark trying to attack the cage, this is not the case," wrote the cameraman on YouTube. "These awesome sharks are biting at large chunks of tuna tied to a rope. When a great white shark lunges and bites something, it is temporarily blinded. They also cannot swim backwards. So this shark lunged at the bait, accidentally hit the side of the cage, was most likely confused and not able to swim backwards, it thrust forward and broke the metal rail of the cage."

I love the guy in the video that after asks, "Was there anybody in there?" Because that's the kind of shark-diving expedition I want to go on: the one that doesn't know where its divers are. Okay, now let me just get a headcount before heading back to shore. Let's see we've got *counting heads* one, two, three, four I forgot how many people we had today oh well let's go.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to DT, who agrees this is why you should only watch sharks in nature documentaries.

    Hang on a minute, that is not an acceptable explanation of how a shark got into a device designed to keep them out.
    "...it thrust forward and broke the metal rail of the cage."
    Are you telling me they could all get in if they wanted to?!

    Security theatre: coz apex predators dont eat other apex predators. Might hunt one for sport or gnaw on one for jokes

    How do you get shit out of a wetsuit?

  • ispitzhotfire

    You just keep swimming.

  • Munihausen

    Something fishy about this situation.

  • asdfadfs

    dumb fish. tried so hard to get in, then when he did it panicked about drowning

  • TheQiwiMan

    Dammit shark cage, you had ONE JOB.

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    It would be almost disappointing to know that someone was going to have to put "beaten to death by shark" on your death certificate. Terrifying.

  • kodama

    Besides the head count, you need to do a separate arm, leg, and torso count.

    Cage goes in the water, you go in the water. Shark's in the water. Our shark. Farewell and adieu. . .

  • Meh

    Jesus, my wetsuit wouldn't be a place you'd want to be in.

  • Quax

    The guy filming is obviously not part of the crew, probably just a tourist. So, yeah, as always great joke GW.

    Edit: Watch the guy with the ponytail, judging by his reaction he is fully aware somebody is in there.

    some blood coming from its gills, I hope it was ok.
