Shark week: Great white smashes through diver’s cage

A diver had a narrow escape after a shark burst through his cage in the Pacific Ocean.

The 16-foot shark circles the box before ramming into it from below.

Discovery have shared the footage as part of Shark Week, which begins on Monday, 25 July, in the UK.
