The best way to avoid a shark attack is to stay out of the water, or so say they say.
But one video seems to suggest otherwise — as it revealed a great white jumping right onto a fishing boat. Clearly, it was a shark out of water.
The incident happened off the shores of New Zealand, where the fishermen were targeting kingfish. Instead, they got the king of all fish, and not exactly the one they wanted.

“I was thinking, ‘What the f – – k do we do?’ ” Ryan Churches, the ship’s captain said, via the New York Post. “We can’t go up the front to go near it because they go absolutely bonkers.”
So how did they get rid of the critter?
“We dropped the anchor down a little bit because it seemed to be holding it in place [on the boat],” Churches said. “He went absolutely bonkers again and pushed himself through the bow rail and slid back into the water.
“He got away safe.”
Thankfully, so did everyone else. But for a few scary moments, it appeared those on board may have felt like their life had jumped the shark, right after the shark jumped them first. Can you imagine not paying attention and then out of nowhere you hear a flop? Then you realize that flop is an actual SHARK just casually chilling in the front of the boat? Geesh, talk about a scary moment.
