JUPITER, FL (WVUE) -

A pair of divers off the coast of Florida took it upon themselves to remove a hook from the jaws of a 6-foot shark.

Self-proclaimed “shark addicts” Cameron Nimmo, 26, and Mickey Smith, 25, filmed the encounter near the coast of Jupiter, Florida.

As a male dusky shark approached, the divers noticed a fishing hook lodged in its jaws.

One of the divers immobilized the shark while a second quickly removed the hook from the fish’s jaws.

The incident was caught on camera and uploaded to YouTube and various social media outlets. Mobile users can watch the video here.
