Shark Attacks a Film Crew Standing in a Tiny Boat

Shocking footage has emerged of the terrifying moment two people stood in a tiny dinghy while a six meter great white shark charged them.

A film crew shooting the documentary Lair of the Mega shark were just off New Zealand's Steward Island when they attempted to put a camera on the dorsal fin of the massive ocean predator who decided to nudge the boat and bite at the thin rope that tethered the dinghy to the main boat. The two men that can be seen on the boat are shark experts Jeff Kurr and Andy Casagrande. They can be seen panicking as the great white uses it's strong jaws and tail to shake the boat, causing it to sway dangerously.

The shark disappears for a few moments while the crew regroups, however, they are stunned a second time when it resurfaces dangerously close to the dinghy, as it tries to get a hold of the bait attached to the main rig.
