This is incredible.
A scuba diver diving 70 feet close to the Cayman Islands is lucky to be alive!
Jason Dimitri was capturing a lionfish when suddenly a Caribbean reef shark sharknadoed him!
The scuba diver was able to fend off the shark's multiple attacks against him with a super short spear before the scary predatory finally gave up. Jason captured the entire melee on his GoPro 3 camera.
On his YouTube page, Jason wrote:
"I want to make it clear that I am hunting lion fish to help protect the reef from the destruction that they cause. The shark was acting in his natural environment. I have no ill will toward him and will get back in the water and continue to protect the reef for future generations. I would strongly encourage anyone out there to donate to REEF.org or other organizations to help protect our reefs, Sharks and the beautiful creatures in them."
Glad to hear that Jason's brush with death hasn't turned the scuba diver off from ever reentering the water.
We can't say we would be acting the same way if we had just experienced something like that.
It would probably be a few more years before we ever entered the water again if a shark came at us like it did him!
