Fisherman's shark shock filmed

Two friends fishing in America got more than they bargained for when one of them reeled in a shark!

David Saldamado and Scotty Westgaard were out in their kayaks off the coast of Santa Barbara, when the thresher shark took their bait.

The two-and-a-half-meter-long fish was so strong it pulled David off his kayak and into the water.

But no-one was injured and his friend didn't seem too worried either - he caught the whole thing on camera.
