Incredible moment diver punches shark with left hook and stabs another while wrestling massive tuna | The Sun

THIS is the incredible moment a spearfisherman thumps a shark with a left hook and stabs another while he wrestles with a prized yellowfin tuna.

TikToker @hideshi_Izu shared the "unbelievable" clip online as he escaped the jaws of death.

The diver was spearfishing in deep water off the coast of southern California, US.

The footage showed the moment he nailed a huge tuna with his spear gun.

The bloodied fish torpedoes off in shock attracting a group of sharks that lurk below.

Next minute, one by one, the sharks propel themselves towards the diver taking a swipe at him.

Amid wrestling his catch, tangled in rope, the man sends a left hook towards the shark's jaw, fending off the predator.

But the horror wasn't over, another shark comes within inches of the diver whose only hope is to stab it with his filleting knife.

Luckily, the shark swims off and the man and the fish get aboard a boat nearby in one piece.
