In the Cherry Grove inlet near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Sarah Brame and her family got the surprise of a lifetime. As her fiancé, William Moore, filmed her catching her first fish, something unexpected happened. As Brame stands on a dock and begins reeling in a small red drum fish, a bull shark weighing at least 200 lb. leaps out of the water and takes the fish in midair.
In the video, Brame and the men scream in shock "shark!" (along with a few expletives), as they try to take in what just happened. The rather sizable bull shark, which the anglers estimate to have been 4 to 6 feet long, leaves the group in shock. Brame told a local news station in Louisiana, "I was actually kind of scared because I seen it jump and I was, like, oh my gosh, it could jump up here and get me!"
The video has gone viral on YouTube, amassing more than 1.5 million views since it was originally posted two days ago. Toward the end of the video, even though the encounter is one the family will not soon forget, Moore is heard exclaiming, "I got that on camera!" Even though Brame lost her first catch to the shark, one thing is for sure: The one that got away left her with a great campfire story to tell.
