Orleans Fisherman Captures 'Incredible Video' Of Airborne Great White Shark

ORLEANS (CBS) – A fishing boat captain captured an incredible sight on camera as a great white shark went airborne to grab a bite to eat on Saturday off the coast of Orleans.

Hap Farrell, a captain with Stunmai II Sportfishing, had his camera rolling while his passengers reeled in a fish in Rock Harbor.

With the fish still on the line, a shark can be seen leaving the water with the fish in its mouth.

"It's not an uncommon thing," said Farrell, who added that nearly every day on the water he spots sharks trying to turn his passengers' catches into lunch.

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy shared Farrell's footage, calling it "incredible video."
