Cage Diving With Great White Sharks In South Africa
A Great White Shark is attracted by a lure on the 'Shark Lady Adventure Tour' on October 19, 2009 in Gansbaai, South Africa. The lure, usually a tuna head, is attached to a buoy and thrown into the water in front of the cage with the divers. The waters off Gansbaai are the best place in the world to see Great White Sharks, due to the abundance of prey such as seals and penguins which live and breed on Dyer Island, which lies 8km from the mainland.

A great white shark broke in an observation cage with a diver inside off the coast of Mexico. The experts described it as "one in a million occurrence."

The diver in the cage, Chan Ming, had escaped after the great white shark broke into the cage. Luckily, he was unharmed and said he was "reborn" after the incident. Meanwhile, the great white shark had also escaped out of the top of the cage. On the other hand, a part of its body was covered with blood and seemed it acquired some injuries.

The video was filmed by You Tubers Gabe and Garrett. The video description explained that there was a single diver inside the cage. The diver went outside the bottom of the cage, looking down on two great white sharks. They described the diver as an experienced dive instructor and remained calm. When the shark rolled back outside the cage, the diver steadily swam back up the cage completely unharmed, as noted by IFL Science.

Chan Ming did not blame anyone for what had happened. He said that the boat teams are professional. On the other hand, he did not go back to the water immediately. When asked when he will get back into the water. He said the next day.

Meanwhile, Samuel Gruber, a shark conservationist and founder of the Bimini Shark Lab in the Bahamas told the Guardian that the shark came out the worse for wear and the tourist got more than he bargained for. He further said that the shark was bleeding from the gills and from an area near the dorsal fin. He added that it was clear to him that the shark was attracted to the cage for purposes of exciting footage. On the other hand, he said that he did not oppose shark diving. He also hoped that it could turn those who berate the great white shark into ambassadors.
