We know great white sharks sometimes breach, hurling themselves completely out of the water. What if you're in the way? South African shark researchers were unprepared when a shark weighing an estimated 500kg actually landed in their boat, thrashing around, destroying equipment, and generally making a very dangerous nuisance of itself. Unable to find a safe way to ditch the shark, the crew had the boat towed into the dock. The shark survived, and no humans were injured.
