Great white shark jumps into fisherman’s boat

(CNN) — A deadly predator was the catch of a lifetime for a fisherman in Australia recently.

A great white shark — leaping into the man’s boat.

The fisherman says the shark hit him on the arm as it fell, knocking him to his hands and knees.

He signaled for help, and a marine rescue unit launched a boat and dispatched a helicopter.

The man was treated for cuts on his arm — mostly from getting knocked around the boat as the shark thrashed around wildly.

The great white was measured at almost 9 feet long.
