A fisherman had a close encounter with a shark when his kayak was overturned by the mighty fish in South Africa. Watch the video here.

Dev De Lange went out fishing on his kayak in his native South Africa when the incident happened last weekend.

The man, who films all his fishing expeditions, caught the incident on camera.

De Lange is visibly shaken when the shark knocks him off his kayak and plunges him into the water.

Despite the shock, the South African emerges from the water unscathed, and with quite a story to tell!
