Fisherman escapes real-world Jaws

A man had a close encounter with a real-life Jaws in Honolulu, Hawaii.

According to CNN, kayak fisherman Isaac Brumaghim, 37, had a tuna on the end of his line when a shark jumped out of the water. The fish snatched the hooked tuna on a second attempt after Brumaghim tried to reel in his catch.

Wayne Samiere, the Honolulu Fish Company president, said that he believes it was likely a 10-foot tiger shark from 400 to 500 lbs. Luckily for Brumaghim, the shark was only hungry for the tuna.
