Amazing video of fearless diver freeing shark from hook! (video)

Marine biologist Leigh Cobb says she knows how to calm sharks

An amazing slow-motion video shows the moment a British diver unhooks metal from the mouth one of the sea’s greatest predators.
The footage shows diver and marine biologist Leigh Cobb bait the oceanic whitetip shark with a fish – before dislodging the piece of metal with her right hand.

The fearless diver said that by placing her hand on the shark’s nose it was momentarily hypnotised because all of a shark’s senses are at the front of its face.

The British ex-pat who now lives in Palm Beach, Florida, believes that her intervention could have helped keep the shark alive.
