While diving in the beautiful waters of the Bahamas, a diver realized that a large Atlantic hammerhead shark was following him as he rose to the surface.

Not wanting to give the shark a chance to grab his legs, he dove to the bottom to keep his legs away from the large predator. He knew he would be defenseless against this alpha predator who could tear him to pieces within seconds. All he could do was try to swim away but also stay at the bottom.

He filmed what he believed would be his last minutes on Earth. Then something unexpected happened; something that a frequent diver like him never thought would happen. It was perhaps divine intervention – it was not his time to go.
