This is pretty chilling stuff. A seven-foot shark - thought to be a Great White - attacked a distance swimmer off Manhattan Beach in California this weekend.

This video was taken by the fisherman on the pier that hooked the shark, before he went on to attack the swimmer.

It's terrifying to watch... Luckily, the guy was rescued and is said to be recovering from the bite to his chest.
