Usually when you see a giant shark swimming towards you, the last thing you want to do is jump in the water. But when these guys saw an injured ten foot long hammerhead shark floundering near this Florida beach, they jumped into action.

Surrounded by beach-goers with cameras in hand, these folks quickly worked to rescue the injured beast. Logan Lakos, one of the rescuers, knew hammerhead sharks are generally uninterested in attacking humans, so when he noticed this shark was clearly injured he decided to pull the shark in to shore to help it out. When the shark was stabilized, the makeshift rescue team worked to remove the two large fishing hooks lodged in its mouth. Once the hammerhead was freed from the hooks, it was clearly in a state of confusion, and tried to swim into the shore.

Logan Lakos jumped into action again, guiding the shark away from the onlookers on the beach and out to the deep sea. The shark appeared to have no further injuries and once it found its bearings, was able to swim away successfully.
