In one moment, a kayaker is making his way across the water, blissfully unaware of the fact that anything could go wrong. Moments later, everything changed: The giant shadow of a massive shark was approaching him. Onlookers on the pier shouted at the kayaker in horror, as it seemed the shark was making a beeline for the kayaker. Without a quick getaway there was potential that the curious (and maybe even hungry) shark could have tested out the kayak (and everything in it) for lunch. However, what happened next is pretty amazing — it must have been this kayaker’s lucky day.
