This wouldn’t be funny if the guy had been hurt. But he wasn’t, so it is:
When a shark began to chew on the boat’s outboard motor, the man tried to fend it off with an oar. The man dropped the oar into the water and then fell in while trying to retrieve it.
“So he’s now in the water, his boat’s in gear and it’s heading off.”
Fortunately the shark, a Great White, merely circled the man a couple of times before heading off itself.
