Hero Grandpa Wrestles Terrifying Shark to Save Swimming Children (VIDEO)


paul marshallseaA bunch of kids were swimming and playing in the ocean at a beach in Queensland, Australia recently when all of a sudden -- nightmare incarnate! A six-and-a-half-foot dusky shark makes his terrifying way up to the coast and tries to get in on the frivolity. "Oh, hell no!" 62-year-old grandpa Paul Marshallsea says to himself. "That shark isn't going to attack these toddlers on my watch!" And the dude jumps into the ocean and wrestles the thing with his bare hands -- and the whole thing is on video! This is nuts!

Check it out:


How awesome is this man? Dude didn't stop for a second! He just dove right in there and got into fistacuffs with a freakin' shark. I think this might be the Dos Equis guy. If this man gutted this fish, grilled it, and served it alongside a gorgeous white burgundy, this is definitely the Dos Equis guy.

Hilarious joking aside, it's funny how our instincts kick in when it has to do with our kids -- or in this guy's case, any kids. If I ever saw a shark come near my child, hell yeah, I'd fight it to the death. It would probably be my death, but still. I wouldn't give it a second thought.

What's the craziest thing you've ever done to protect your child?

Hmmm... not quite the video that I expected with that kind of headline.

Pretty tame.

You have amazing writing skills becuse that video sucked. I was expecting a great fight with a dangerous shark, and it was a sick shark trying to beach itself...

WOW. That video involved NO wrestling, nor were any people in danger! Everyone was on the beach, walking TOWARDS the shark to see it. And that shot where he falls in the water, the one they replay in slo-mo? He was holding onto the shark's TAIL.


Kerfu... Kerfuffle

Uhm. I didn't see much frivolity in the water until the shark was coaxed out to sea. The shark was sick.

Ya know as much as I would not want my loved ones attacked by a shark from the looks of the video, this poor animal seems to be disoriented and perhaps ill. To make matters worse, its got half a dozen men aggressively yanking on its tail, poor creature.....
