Brothers Save Hammerhead Shark on Florida Beach

A hammerhead shark was helped by a group of men on the beach in Destin, Fla. The shark was dragged toward the shore when someone noticed it was injured, and fishing hooks were stuck in its mouth. Brothers Marcus and Logan Lakos, and a group of others, pulled two hooks and a lure from the shark. Logan then pulled the shark back into the water, and it swam away.

Me and my brother fight to save an injured hammerhead shark on the Destin, FL shoreline and bravely took it to safety away from the public. My brother, once realizing it was injured, swam out to bring it to shore away from people still in the water. I filmed this heroic display as he dragged the injured 10 ft. hammerhead to shore. The shark was pulled to shore and we realized it had several deep sea fishing hooks in its mouth as well as steel fishing line tangled in and around its head. My brother, along with help from bystanders worked to get the hooks out and save the dying shark. My brother was able to pull the shark into deeper water until it was able to swim away safely in an attempt to avoid further injuring itself or the public.

All of the distress and yelling heard in the background were caused by a natural fear from certain individuals and lack of understanding the situation as well as the behaviors of hammerhead sharks. Once bystanders realized we were trying to help the shark they quickly did what they could to help
