VIDEO: Diver fends off shark in the Caribbean

Posted: Updated:

A man caught a scary encounter with a shark on camera as he was diving in the Western Caribbean Sea.

Jason Dimitri and his friends were Lion Fish culling in 70 feet of water on March 13 when a shark comes out of nowhere to defend his territory.

Dimitri appears to be caught-off-guard when the shark first comes at him but his instincts quickly kick in and he uses his culling spear to shoo the shark away.

The diver says the encounter will not scare him away from continuing his work culling Lion Fish in the area. He also bears no ill will toward the shark for its actions in the encounter.

Dimitri says Lion Fish culling helps to protect the reef from the invasive destruction the fish brings.

The entire exchange was filmed with a GoPro camera attached to the diver.
