Woman pushes shark on the nose, showing what to do when a predator approaches you

A safety diver in Oahu, Hawaii, has recorded a video guiding swimmers on how to safely negotiate a meeting with a tiger shark. Footage recorded by Kayleigh Grant shows fellow diver Andriana Fragola being approached by a tiger shark. In the video voiceover, Grant explains: “Splashing and swimming away imitates what prey does. When we’re dealing with top predators like sharks, we want to also act like predators.” She continues: “What you’d actually want to do is not splash, turn around and face the animal, and maintain eye contact. With tiger sharks, you can place your hand on top of their head, push down gently and that will redirect them away from you.”
