Great whites have been appearing more frequently along the coast of Massachusetts.

The great white shark was feeding on a large chunk of tuna when it appears to become a little zealous as it swings its fin violently in the water.

Then, the shark makes a dramatic lunge forward, slamming into the metal cage.

"Words can't describe what it is like to see Mako sharks of this size come out of the water like they do," Fly fishing Captain Mark Martin wrote on Facebook.

Workers say the shark broke the metal cage railing as a diver was inside.

At one point, you can see blood coming from the shark's gigantic mouth. The good news is the diver was okay after dive instructors lifted the top of the cage to let the shark out.

The instructors say this is an extremely rare event, and it's even more incredible that it was all caught on camera.
