Scuba Diver Encounters Shark -- and Lives to Tell the Tale

8xjwnA scuba diver off the coast of Florida's Vero Beach had a close encounter with a shark - and caught it all on his GoPro camera, according to an article in the NY Daily News.

Jimmy Roseman, a West Melbourne native, ran into the shark while he was 90-feet under water. The shark circled him several times and when he got too close, Roseman prodded him with his spear gun to scare him off.
