OMG the poor man looks exhausted. Wonder how this happened? fall from boat? swimming? He is a very lucky man.

Yeah, and I wonder why he was naked? He certainly must have been exhausted, he was lucky to be rescued. I'm not sure about how dangerous the hammerhead shark was though, I know they can attack humans but I don't think they are as dangerous as great whites??

Get a job as a shark-tester and report back.

I'd only try it with my clothes on.

I'm making jokes, but I feel very happy the poor man was rescued. It could have had a tragic ending.

This just shows how other animal life forms ARE BETTER than our animal species! (HUMANS)

The guy is quite lucky and didnt give off any vibrations he was a threat so they left him alone....... HUMAN ANIMALS could learn alot from other animals!

I don't think sharks attack people because of a threat.. they usually go after folks or anything cause they see it as food.

I was afraid he wasn't even going to make it up the ladder and his rescuer didn't look like he was too concerned either. I think I would have thrown that rope out the very first thing instead of reaching for him. But then again, I've never been in either position and I hope I never am.

Clothes add alot of weight. He was treading water for 20 hours before his rescue. He likely would have been more more exhausted and/or drowned had he left his clothes on.
