Beachgoers gather as man guides shark into ocean

TOPSAIL BEACH, NC (WMBF) - A shark was guided back into the Atlantic after beachgoers crowded the surf to get a closer look.

The video captured by Facebook user Amy Neal Lovaas shows a man grasping the fins of a black finned shark and directing the creature into the ocean.

Waves tossed the shark a few times before the animal disappears into a wave.

Lovaas claimed the video was taken at Topsail Beach in North Carolina. Topsail Beach is located about 115 miles north of Myrtle Beach.
