Spear fisher Danny Henricks was in the water off Australia's North Queensland coast when he saw something emerge from the depths.
A BULL SHARK. And it didn't look like this was a friendly visit.
In fact, the bull shark was coming for him...hard.
Unfortunately for the shark, Henricks is an experienced spear fisherman. And had a spear.
The spear won.
The attack reportedly happened last month, but Henricks only recently uploaded the video to YouTube, where it's been viewed more than 3 million times.
Henricks defended his actions against viewers who were angry over the shark's death.
"I was not there too hunt sharks just fish to eat and I was really disapointed that the shark would of died [sic]," he wrote.
Henricks also told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation he thought the shark was going to come at him at "half-pace".
"I thought he was going to suss me out, so I was just going to poke him away to show I wasn't food," Henricks said. "I just wanted him to keep me at a distance."
Instead, the shark attacked, impaling itself on the spear.
"I lunged forward with the gun a little bit just before he got there, but most of it was his force," Henricks told the ABC.
