    A diver sedates a shark by flipping it upside down to remove a hook protruding from its mouth. Friends Cameron Nimmo and Randy Jordan have made it their mission to help sharks that have been pierced with fishing hooks and remove them from their mouths, noses, and bodies. The hooks are often left in the sharks after being caught and released by fishermen. The pair, who go by the name Shark Addicts, came across a 6ft Silky shark while swimming off the coast of Jupiter in Florida, USA earlier this month. During the encounter Randy gently turns the shark upside down while Cameron removes the hook.

  2. i absolutely love this!! i hate how shark movies now a days like sharnado make people think about sharks in a negative way when we really are the true monsters killing over 100 million of them a year…

  3. I don't understand why people think sharks are so dangerous.. I guess it's just one of those hard wired fears

  4. Inspiring video. Puts the kind in to human kind. May people see the affect they have on many lives when they are helping.

  5. Lol, we humans are the devils just look how much animal abuse are there in china and etc. we humans caused so much pain to animals. Think about it.

  6. In tears..thank you to Cameron Nimmo,Randy Smith and Mickey Smith. you all are doing something so incredible, something bigger than most realize. From the bottom of my heart- THANK YOU. THANK YOU! #worldchanging   #amazingpeople  

  7. Why hate on those divers that are trying to help. People fear sharks so much, when the sharks killing rate are 10 humans per year. And the humans rate is up to a thousands.

    I would absolutely volunteer to help them save those sharks. (:

  8.  5 people die from shark attacks and 100 million sharks die from humans yearly. whose the real threat here?

  9. Guys, you made my week! Sharks are magnificient animals deserve our respect. So nice to know some people care about them. 

  10. Eventually these nut balls will pay the nut ball tax for their behavior. A hook in a sharks mouth is equal to a splinter in your hand, irritating at most, but basically easy to ignore. These divers are removing the hooks for politically reasons more than anything else, in the end they are annoying the sharks more than helping them.

  11. This is a totally unnecessary waste of time. All of these sharks are functioning normally. If it makes them feel better, that's cool I guess. But there's no need to get emotional over this or call them brave or heros.

  12. I do nt know why most sharks caught have the hook cut off at the trace when the hook could so easyly be r,emoved with a long peice of tube with a slit in the end to pass up the line,Slide pipe onto line then with a shove it would be easy.

  13. You ARE HEROES: helping sharks who are the victims of irresponsible, evil people . Good KARMA for you, heroic guys !

  14. Hooks corrode in salt water and fall out over time. And even if they didn't, you can still eat with a lip piercing.

    This is dangerous and unnecessary.

  15. im glad their doing this for awareness. im aware now that i gotta use a bigger hook next time and stay in the fight with the fishing pole. not cut the line after 10min of tussling😥

  16. All hooks should be made from material that corrodes relatively quickly. These guys are doing the world a favor. Well done!

  17. Yay these people are exactly like me !😊 they love sharks and try to help them (keep up the good work guys)👌🏻🤙🏻👍🏻

  18. To everyone who keeps saying hooks rust away over time and that it's unnecessary…oh please PLEASE can I put hooks into your face and body please please please can I do it…it's called having empathy and compassion something you people seem to lack considerable amounts of….oh who cares if we put the hooks into them in the first place…Humanity will never improve with people like this in existence on the planet…

  19. Not like a small perishable hook in their mouths will ruin their lives. Sharks adapt. Pathetic attempt at Youtube fame.

  20. I wanna do this 😇
    Happy to see this…
    I was watching tuna catching an every time they hook shark they just cut the line smh
