Video: Fishermen help deliver 20 baby hammerhead sharks

A group of fishermen in Florida have helped deliver 20 baby hammerhead sharks after noticing the mother was injured.

Despite being one of the most feared animals in the ocean, these fishermen didn't hesitate to help during the difficult labour.

When the fishermen pulled the three and a half metre female from the murky water – a task that took almost three hours –  it soon became apparent that she was pregnant.

The men removed the babies one by one, while attempting to save the life of the mother.

Unfortunately she didn’t survive her injuries but the men managed to save a whopping 20 of her babies.

The young hammerheads subsequently swam back off into the sea.
