SOUTH CAROLINA - Sarah Brame was fishing on near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina earlier this week when she got the surprise of a lifetime.
A large bull shark jumped out of the water and swooped in to steal her catch as she reeled in her first fish.
Brame's fiance captured the scary moment on video.
The water was only a few feet deep in the inlet where they were fishing and they had no idea the shark was lurking beneath them.
According to biologists bull sharks are often spotted in South Carolina waters.
It's said to be the only type of shark that can survive in fresh water, which is why they can make their way into inland areas.
