A group of beachgoers in Ocean City, Maryland spotted a shark struggling with a fishing hook caught in its mouth and decided to lend a hand.

After hauling the shark out of the surf, one man pinned it down and used a pair of pliers to get the large hook out of his mouth.

Several men then lifted the shark up to pose for a picture before returning the animal to the waves.
