WATCH: California Kayaker Survives Great White Shark Attack

“I was sure I was done,” Brian Correiar told National Geographic.

Watching the newly-released footage of his being attacked by a great white shark, it’s easy to understand where Correiar was coming from.

On March 18, the California resident went out kayaking in Monterey Bay. But the shark attacked his kayak, causing him to fall out. Suddenly, he was in the water with the shark nearby. But the shark was impeded a bit by the kayak, and Correiar was able to flag down a nearby sailboat.

Nonetheless, Correiar was understandably terrified.

“The shark came toward me, dropped the kayak, then dove straight down below me where I couldn’t see it,” Correiar said.

He added, “It was like a horror movie.”
