When the Sharknado Happens, This Is the Man Who Will Save the Day

A video of a fisherman on Nantucket Beach has gone viral after he reeled in a shark and wrestled it onto the shore

Well if the Sharknado ever happens in real life, we know who to call! Elliot Sudal, a Connecticut native, has made waves on the Internet thanks to a video of him wrestling a 200-pound shark. Check out the video below (the action really starts at the 0:16 mark). 

After he reels the shark in, Elliot wrestles it, incredibly, to shore. But this isn’t anything new for the fisherman: His Facebook page features numerous pictures of him posing with monster fish. After taking a few pictures of this shark, Elliot released the animal back into the water. "I always treat them well," he told local news station WFSB. "I'm conservation-minded when it comes to that. I don't kill any of them. I just let them go. And yeah, they swim off just fine."
