Terrifying close encounter caught on camera as shark attacks jet ski (VIDEO)

Terrifying close encounter caught on camera as shark attacks jet ski (VIDEO)

Two incredibly brave (or incredibly stupid) tourists got way too close to a shark while enjoying a jet ski excursion in Australia and were lucky to escape without injury.

While cruising around Fraser Island’s idyllic blue waters off the coast of Queensland, the couple noticed a shadow in the waters below and – cue the Jaws theme – decided to check it out.

Getting far too close for comfort, the pair was lucky to escape when the shark launched from the water to attack but only connected with the jet ski and, thankfully, not one of their limbs.

No one was injured although the jetski did get some small scuff marks where the shark contacted the ski," the couple wrote online afterwards.
