A group of surfers and beachgoers in Venice rescued a great white shark this morning after it latched onto a fishing hook and washed ashore.

The rescue near Venice Pier was caught on a video sent to KTLA.

From the video, it looks like a happy ending: the shark swims away. And while the creature thrashes around a lot, it looks like no rescuers are hurt trying to push the shark back out toward open water.
