    While fishing at Jensen Beach in Florida, US, three fishermen noticed a shark struggling in the surf. It seemed to be caught in something, so they immediately came to its rescue.

    In this video, one of the men is seen running towards the shark and pulling it out of the water. The rescuers removed a fishing line and hook from its jaw and released it back into the ocean. It was a blacktip shark, which is listed as "near threatened" by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature due to commercial and recreational fishing.
