Georgia teen pulls massive bull shark from river

Posted: Updated:

VALONA, GA (NBC) – Sharks can be menacing and dangerous, and they may be closer to us than you think.

A few weeks ago, a 16-year-old boy was hanging out at a fishing dock in South Georgia.

He was raised in a shrimping family, so he's no stranger to the water or its creatures.

But then, he saw something strange in a shallow pool of water… two bull sharks.

With help from another man, he dragged the catch of a lifetime onto the dock.

"I figured it would have been a hundred pound shark, when it came out to three hundred pound shark, phew, it was a doozy is all I could say," Noel Todd said.

The bull shark weighed 368 pounds, measuring nearly 8 and a half feet long.

The bull sharks are believed to be following shrimp boats up rivers from the Gulf of Mexico.
