Great Migrations: (un)safe boating practices around white sharks

Don’t try this at home kids!

And the Great Migrations media goodness continues with the above clip. I realize that accidents happen, and I’m sure this type of thing makes for good television. However, this might not be the best kind of event to advertise to the general public when promoting an educational show.

The only beneficial aspect of this clip is that it illustrates that white sharks aren’t generally much interested in attacking people. Given the circumstances, if the nearby white shark had been interested in a free meal, the opportunity was certainly there. Fortunately, that wasn’t the case, and the crew member was able to get back on the boat safe and sound.
