Shark Attacks Rowing Team

A 12 foot shark attacked a rowing team in New Zealand this morning. The shark briefly circled the boat before making its attack, ramming into the boat, sending it rocking. The two team members quickly got into the well of the boat and tried to not move or make a sound. The attack continued for the next 15 minutes leaving the rowers shell shocked. One of the rowers considered taping a gas cooking canister to a flare and trying to shoot it ‘Jaws’ style but decided against that idea. Help finally arrived 6 hours later!
