Jaws, anyone?

Icelandic “Iceman” grabs shark to save men

I’m sure someone in Hollywood is already contemplating a movie treatment about this guy but Captain Sigurdur Petursson,

“…, known to locals as “the Iceman”, ran into the shallow water and grabbed the shark by its tail. He dragged it off to dry land and killed it with his knife.”

We aren’t talking about a itsy bitsy shark here. The chomper in question weighed in at 600 pounds! On top of that, he caught it with his bare hands. For those of you not aware, a shark’s skin has very sharp scales that point in the opposite direction of travel. These scales can slice up a hand if slid the wrong way.

I think we have found someone tough enough to replace Arnold as the Terminator. He probably has a cool accent too…
