Paul Marshallsea, a 61-year-old British man on vacation with his wife and daughter, wrestled a shark in shallow water on an Australian beach in Sunshine Coast, Queensland and dragged it back out to sea.

The man was barbequing on the beach when he heard people yell "shark!" Without hesitation, Marshallsea ran into the ocean, grabbed the shark by the tail and swung it around toward deeper water. Another man stepped in an turned it around before it swam away.

The creature was a Dusky shark, which can grow up to 12 feet in length and can be dangerous to humans because of its size and tenancy to swim near shore, but experts says attacks are rare.
