WATCH: Shark goes airborne after being hooked by fishermen

A group of fishermen off the coast of San Diego couldn't believe their eyes when they ended up with a shark on the end of their line.

The shark, which the video description identifies as a Mako shark, repeatedly soars out of the water as high as 10 feet in the air, while trying to shake free of the line.

Mark Martin, the boat's captain, managed to shoot video of the incredibly acrobatic display, and took to Facebook to describe the gravity defying display.

"Words can't describe what it is like to see Mako sharks of this size come out of the water like they do," he wrote.
