Diver Gets Attacked by a Feisty Reef Shark, Captures the Whole Thing on Action Cam

Action cam footage we’ve featured ranges from spectacular aerial shots taken using a DJI Phantom drone, to unbelievable extreme sports stunts, to animals who are so keen on getting their own GoPro they’re willing to steal yours. This, however, is the first time we’ve seen a shark attack filmed from the first person perspective.

The video was shot by diver Jason Dimitri while he was culling lionfish in the Western Caribbean Sea near the Caymans. GoPro Hero3 securely strapped to his head, all of a sudden he found himself face-to-face with a Caribbean reef shark who seemed interested in getting a taste.

“The shark came out of no ware,” writes Dimitri in the video description. “It scared the crap out of me.” But far from deterring him from diving there again, he says he will most definitely return.

“I love this place and will continue diving here for the rest of my life.” he continues. “In no way did this encounter discourage me from getting back into the water.”

Check out the video at the top to experience the whole thing for yourself, and head over to YouTube to read the full description and hear more of what Dimitri had to say about the encounter.
