The truth is, sharks have very little interest in being seen by humans, but one in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, couldn’t help but enjoy a close-up.

A father and his daughter were testing out their new GoPro at Papamoa Beach, when suddenly a shark came dangerously close, swimming right next to them.

According to the comments on YouTube, the man filming was actually even hit by the shark! I know GoPro’s slogan is “Be a Hero,” but this might be too much to ask for the poor guy on his first day of owning one.
