Max Miranov, who is from St Petersburg but lives in California, was on holiday on Ascension Island in the South Pacific. He was floating close to shore while surrounded by fish swimming in the shallow water.
However, after the fish appeared several sharks. The Russian recorded himself hitting them with his paddle in an attempt to drive them away.
Some viewers were furious with Miranov, saying he should’ve left them alone. But he prefered to float in the middle of the animals, hitting them.
