    The sad part is that people WANT to see this stuff. Human life means nothing to some people now, just a video they can 'like'. No respect

    This is not how shark bites. The mouth of the shark is under the body. The shark has to turn to bite and not lifting the person above the water.

    This does not look like a shark attacking. The mouth of the shake is under the body and has to turn and bite. The shark cannot bite straight because of its forehead.
