ORLANDO, FLORIDA – A hammerhead shark dragged a college student in his kayak up the Atlantic coast for a two-hour “South Florida sleigh ride” that the kayaker taped with a head-mounted camera and posted on YouTube.
Adam Fisk, 22, posted a five-minute clip of his adventure, titled “Lone Man Gets Towed for Miles in Kayak by 11 Foot Hammerhead Shark.”
At one point, Fisk dunked the camera into the water and recorded the shark swimming ahead of the kayak.
Fisk is a member of Team Rebel Fishing, a group of extreme anglers, according to its website. The group estimated Fisk was dragged by the shark for 12 miles (over 19 km).
