The man who filmed a vicious shark attack so clear you can hear screams is still haunted by the experience.
Back in 2018, Dan White was completing his deep diver certification in Egypt when a whitetip shark swam over to his diving group.
And things then took a horrifying turn as seen in a terrifying clip shared to YouTube.
He first started recording it because he thought it was ‘a cool encounter’ and only a day earlier they had came across three of the sharks ‘with no trouble at all’.
Several German divers who were swimming in the same area also joined White’s group and the shark’s behaviour began to change.
He told Tracking Sharks at the time: “As I was filming I noticed that one of the outlet diver’s bubbles spooked the shark and it turned to investigate.”
The video shows the shark make its way over to the divers’ level and swim towards them.
The animal then begins to attack one of the divers, with the clip showing it biting into its victim’s leg.
Dan retold the scary encounter to the BBC’s Why Sharks Attack: “It bit into the diver's leg, latched on, thrashed around and ended up going over almost like a cartwheel.
“It was crazy, it wouldn't let go for what felt like forever. It ended up tearing his calf muscle completely off his leg.”
The man’s calf was ripped to shreds and the shark had not only completely destroyed his calf muscle, but also bitten down to the bone.
“There was a big plume of blood in the water. Another diver started screaming you could hear her scream - a shriek noise in your ear." Dan said.
"It's horrifying to listen to.”
Despite the group being 10 metres below the surface of the water, you can hear the haunting scream in the video.
After the shark attack, the man was helped up the surface where he was heaved out from the water.
Before being rushed to shore, first responders administered pain medication and applied a tourniquet to the man’s leg, which miraculously didn’t need to be amputated. He was then taken to hospital.
Unsurprisingly, YouTube users were quick to express their shock beneath the video, with one person writing in the comments: “Very scary footage.”
Another added: “Wow, absolutely terrifying,” while a third penned: “The most chilling part of this is still being able to hear the screaming under water.”
