They say no good deed goes unpunished but these two guys somehow survived this encounter with a hammerhead shark and came away with all their fingers and toes intact, which is about as unpunished as you can get with a shark.

Two brothers noticed a hammerhead shark close to the shore in Destin, Florida this week and at first thought they were saving the locals until they realised it was injured and decided to help it instead.

According to the uploader 1ArmStarfish, this is what happened:

Me and my brother fight to save an injured hammerhead shark on the Destin, FL shoreline and bravely took it to safety away from the public. My brother, once realizing it was injured, swam out to bring it to shore away from people still in the water. I filmed this heroic display as he dragged the injured 10 ft. hammerhead to shore. The shark was pulled to shore and we realized it had several deep sea fishing hooks in its mouth as well as steel fishing line tangled in and around its head. My brother, along with help from bystanders worked to get the hooks out and save the dying shark. My brother was able to pull the shark into deeper water until it was able to swim away safely in an attempt to avoid further injuring itself or the public.

He's just lucky that his username didn't start echoing reality if you ask us.
