Great white shark attack caught on tape – swimmer describes 'freak' encounter

Two divers off the coast of South Africa experienced quite an encounter with a great white shark that was way, way too close for comfort.

The shark swam right up to their diving cage, rammed hits he had through the bars, then flexed its jaw muscles. You don't want the sharks to do that. It was all caught on video, and thankfully no one was hurt.

The man who shot this incredible video, Bryan Plummer, talks to John Berman and Christine Romans on "Starting Point" to describe seeing what could have been a deadly shark encounter.
