A Hawaiian angler escaped a horrifying encounter with a huge shark while fishing off the coast of Oahu on Friday.
Scott Haraguchi recorded the exciting incident with a Go Pro video camera that was still recording after he caught a fish.
Viewers can see the shark appear off the bow before crashing into and biting the side of the kayak. Haraguchi kicks the monster and cries “Tiger shark!” to alert his approaching fishing friend.
The encounter took place off the coast of Kualoa in Windward Oahu, not far from where a large tiger shark was seen the next day.
Haraguchi, who was not injured, explained via YouTube that he heard a “whooshing” sound just before he saw the shark. “I looked up and saw a wide brown thing on the side of the kayak,” he recalled. “I thought it was a turtle at first.” Tiger sharks, which may grow to be about 20 feet long, frequently feed on green sea
