Hundreds of sharks surround Australian fisherman’s trawler in terrifying video


A fisherman in Australia was shocked to see hundreds of sharks surrounding his trawler while he was out fishing on Friday night. 

Wayne McManus took a video of the hungry fish and posted it on Facebook. 

According to “Sunrise,” McManus was only about 3.4 miles (about 5.5km) north of the Gold Coast Seaway in Australia when he filmed the sharks.

“I’ve been fishing for, you know, more than 30 years and it just seems to be escalating each year so that there are more and more,” McManus told the breakfast show. 

He said that he decided to film the sharks “just so I could see how many are actually out there.”
