Shaq meets shark: Predator breaks into cage with NBA legend (VIDEO)
The former Los Angeles Lakers star was taking part part in a documentary special “Shaq does Shark week” which features the four-time NBA champion swimming alongside with the dangerous creatures in the Bahamas.
A clip of the aquatic encounter was tweeted by show’s makers.
"Give me my goggles. I'm going in," Shaq says before entering the cage. "I ain't afraid of no shark."
As Shaq dives into the water, dozens of sharks surround his cage and one manages to break in - getting dangerously close to the former player.
“There's a shark getting in the cage! There's a shark in the cage! We've got to get him out," a crew member shouts, signaling to his teammates to lift the cage.
'I survived a shark attack, you b**ches!' O’Neal exclaims after being pulled out.
After spending several minutes on board to recuperate, O'Neal returns back to the cage to make another dive.
