Michele Norris speaks with Dorien Schroeder, a team leader with Ocean’s Research, who lived a Jaws-like moment when a great white jumped on deck of her team’s research boat after they threw fish into the water to lure sharks closer. This all happened off the coast of South Africa.

Schroeder says the shark was three meters and it managed to curl up in the back part of the board, seemingly unharmed.

The research team released the shark back in the water and it swam away. [Copyright 2011 National Public Radio]
