American tourists vacationing in Cape Town, South Africa happened upon a dead shark on the beach. To their astonishment, there was movement in the shark's belly – she was pregnant.

Taking a knife to the shark, a man slices open the shark's belly and performs an impromptu C-section on the beach. The man pulls three baby sharks from the dead shark.

The three shark pups are removed from their mother and safely brought to the ocean.

According to Discovery News, baby sharks are born with everything they need to hit the water swimming. This includes teeth, which the man notices quickly.
