A video sent to WECT shows a man pulling the shark by its back fin to help guide it back into the ocean.

"[It was] a little scary because when you where just shin deep you couldn't see him," said Sharon Johnson, who sent the video.

Johnson went on to explain they had caught baby sharks before, “but to see one this size and know it’s right off shore is scary.”
