African viral videos seem to have a natural affinity with South Africa. If it’s not about antelopes crashing into bike racers then its about skate boarders breaking speed limits. The latest viral video to have garnered just over 1.4 million views on youtube in less than 24 hours is that of a Great White Shark getting its head into Shark Diving Cage:
This is how the diver described his experience:
I went shark diving March 21st, 2013 for the first time in Gansbaai, South Africa with my sister Leanne Plummer and best friends Peter Lipscombe, Richard Lipscombe and Monica Kronfli .. and managed to catch this on film!!
A shark totally ignores the bait and goes straight for the cage!! He gets his head inside the cage, while fellow diver Roger (who got married the day before), acted quickly to swim below the gaping sharks mouth and to avoid any injury.
Apologies for any profanity in the video.. it was an out of control situation.
