An American family came across a dead shark washed up on a beach in Cape Town, South Africa, earlier this year.
They quickly concluded that it was pregnant when its belly appeared to move and decided they needed to help the babies inside.
In the video, the man cuts the shark open, but onlookers aren’t exactly sure what spills out at first.
It is only after he peels away some slimy casing about a minute later that one of the babies moves, wriggling around on the sand.
He then cuts deeper into the shark to reveal two more babies, one of which rapidly squirms when touched.
The family is overcome with emotion as the babies are cut free and then carried back into the ocean, where they will most likely live long and happy lives.
