Fishermen catch great white shark off Rhode Island beach, record themselves letting it go

The six-foot great white was caught about 3/4 of a mile off of Misquamicut Beach around 12.30 p.m. The video shot by Michael Lorello shows the shark on the fishing boat with the rest of the catch when it suddenly starts moving.
