A US man has filmed his close encounter with a great white shark, which suddenly emerged from the Atlantic Ocean to attack his boat at the weekend.
Steve Clark was with friends about 30 miles off the coast of South Jersey when a 16-foot great white shark swam up to his boat and tore off a bag of bait.
In a scene reminiscent of Steven Spielberg's 1975 film Jaws, the shark's head can be seen breaking through the surface water exposing its teeth before it grabs the bag that was hanging off the side of the vessel and disappears back into the depths.
The footage which was posted onto YouTube on the June 21 has been viewed over 16,000 times.
