A woman fishing off the back deck of a home overlooking a sleepy coastal inlet in Myrtle Beach, S.C., got the shock of her life when a bull shark leaped out of the murky waters and made off with her catch.
No surprise: A video of the spectacular incident has gone viral, watched more than 2.7 million times since it was posted online Tuesday. It is accompanied by some rather colorful language, so watch at your own discretion.
The only thing missing from the video shot by a hand-held camera is the "da dum, da dum, da dum" music from "Jaws." The moment where the shark breaks through the surface of the water is shocking even though you know what's coming.
Here's what happened, according to Carolina Live, which had an exclusive interview with the fisherwoman, Sarah Brame of Franklinton, N.C.
Brame was fishing off a deck hovering over the waters of the Cherry Grove Inlet on Tuesday afternoon, while her fiance, William Moore, also of Franklinton, captured the placid moment with his video camera. When Brame got a bite and began to reel 'er in, Moore moved in for the close-up. A friend even tried to help out with a fishing net.
