Over Father's Day weekend, a man in Delaware handled a shark with his bare hands, according to the AP. At Cape Henlopen State Park Beach, a man opened the shark's mouth to remove a fish hook from its mouth. “Everyone started yelling, ‘Shark, shark, get out of the water!’” said Rachael Foster, who shared a video of the incident on Facebook. “It was so crazy, like a movie. Like Jaws.” The man was successful in removing the fish hook from the shark's mouth, and then steered the shark into deeper waters and released it. No one was hurt.
