We have to warn you, this is graphic!

A Hawaii man, Braxton Rocha, recently shared his experience of being bitten by a Tiger shark off the coast of the Big Island.

Luckily, he swam to shore to safety and filmed himself being taken away on a gurney. While he was documenting the incident, he captured video of his deep wound.

“I just got attacked by a tiger shark,” Rocha tells the camera.

The scary moment also captures Braxton’s worried face and a nearby friend say, “I love you, brah.” Braxton replies, “Love you too, brah.”

The Associated Press had mentioned that the Tiger Shark was roughly 13 feet in length. Also, Braxton’s condition wasn’t currently known after he was taken to the hospital.


If you remember, a scary moment was captured on live television at a recent surf competition where a surfer was attacked by a shark, but the surfer managed to fight his way to safety.

Shark encounters have been on the rise in recent months. We’re hoping Bradon’s doing well!
