- Dramatic video captures beachgoers aiding a stranded mako shark at Pensacola Beach.
- Tina Fey, alongside husband Josh, witnesses the intense effort to return the marine giant to the sea.
- Mako sharks, weighing up to 1,200 pounds, are one of the ocean's most formidable species.
In sunny Pensacola Beach, Florida, a day at the beach took an unexpected turn when a massive mako shark found itself trapped on the shore. Tina Fey, who was capturing the moment on film, witnessed her spouse, Josh, alongside two brave souls endeavoring to help the distressed creature. The video highlighted the tension of the moment, especially when Tina commented on the shark's daunting dental array with, "Babe, look at those teeth!"
As the shark's struggles intensified, the would-be rescuers wisely stepped back, allowing the creature some space. Their efforts weren't in vain; the footage concludes with the triumphant moment of the mako returning to its oceanic realm.
The visit to Pensacola Beach was meant to be an anniversary celebration for the Fey couple. Little did Tina know that her swimming would be interrupted by her husband's warning about the approaching shark, which, in a twist of events, ended up beaching itself. Recounting the event, Tina shared that after observing the shark's initial struggles, her husband, alongside two others, took the lead to aid the marine giant.
Mako sharks, known to be one of the most formidable species, boast impressive stats like reaching up to 12 feet and weighing 1,200 pounds. Their jaw strength is unparalleled with a bite force of 3,000 pounds, as reported by AmericanOceans.org.
While shark encounters aren't unheard of in Florida, their nature can vary. Mark Summerset, for instance, had a less fortunate run-in when he was bitten by a shark while surfing near New Smyrna Beach. Similarly, Lyudmila Emag's holiday swimming session took a horrifying turn when she felt something clamp down on her thigh, later identified as a shark.
