Video: Shark pulls kayaker 8 miles up coast

Posted:

BOYNTON BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A 22-year-old Boynton Beach man spotted an 11-foot hammerhead shark while he was kayaking this weekend. But instead of paddling away, he grabbed his fishing pole and camera.

The man said he was kayaking near the Boynton Inlet when he saw the large shark.

It latched on to his bait and ended up dragging the kayak about eight miles up the coast to Lake Worth.

The man eventually cut the line and made it back to land safely.

The video was uploaded to YouTube Sunday and has received more than 5,000 views.
