Brothers Save Hammerhead Shark Destin, FL 2015

Brothers Save Hammerhead Shark Destin, FL 2015

Me and my brother fight to save an injured hammerhead shark on the Destin, FL shoreline and bravely took it to safety away from the public. My brother, once realizing it was injured, swam out to bring it to shore away from people still in the water. I filmed this heroic display as he dragged the injured 10 ft. hammerhead to shore. The shark was pulled to shore and we realized it had several deep sea fishing hooks in its mouth as well as steel fishing line tangled in and around its head. My brother, along with help from bystanders worked to get the hooks out and save the dying shark. My brother was able to pull the shark into deeper water until it was able to swim away safely in an attempt to avoid further injuring itself or the public.

All of the distress and yelling heard in the background were caused by a natural fear from certain individuals and lack of understanding the situation as well as the behaviors of hammerhead sharks. Once bystanders realized we were trying to help the shark they quickly did what they could to help

    +pimpgeeee I think the main concern is the shark needs water flowing past
    its gills or it will die, a shark must always swim. In this case where they
    had it the waves rolling in did the trick and it was a short period of time.

    Good for you and your brother; sharks are amazing creatures that are killed
    by the millions each year and people have an irrational fear of them.
