MELBOURNE (AUSTRALIA)- Three fishermen off the coast of Australian state Victoria have captured on film the moment a 5m great white shark attacked their tiny fishing boat.

The three men were tuna fishing at Cape Nelson, off Portland, near the Victorian and South Australian border, when the huge shark started to circle the vessel.
