‘Shark!’: Video shows U.S. Coast Guard protecting swimmers by opening fire on shark

A U.S. Coast Guard member played hardcore lifeguard this week near Hawaii, where he opened fire on a shark to defend dozens of his shipmates in the water.

Crew aboard the cutter Kimball shared photos and videos of the hair-raising encounter on Facebook Wednesday, where they described the incident as “right out of a Hollywood movie.”

The shark showed up to crash a swim call, which involves Navy or Coast Guard crews taking a break from their ships to swim around in the ocean.

“Our goal was to keep it away from shipmates, not harm it if possible. It was most likely curious and not looking for a meal.”
