Two Brothers Help Injured Hammerhead Shark

Follow NextStop Magazine:


Marcus and Logan Lakos were swimming in the water with their Mother at the beach when they spotted a Hammerhead in the water. The Hammerhead was injured and the first reaction that Logan had was to bring it in to shore and try and save it, despite the screaming crowd who lack understanding of the situation as well as the behaviors of hammerhead sharks.

“I started pulling it in and it was kind of scary, but hammerhead sharks aren’t really that dangerous to humans, Knowing that, I pulled it in. Eveyone else was freaking out so it was hard to bring him in. But once people started realizing we were trying to help it, some of the other guys around were all crowding around it and trying to help it.”  - Logan Lakos

The brothers were able to pull two hooks and a lure from the shark’s mouth before releasing it back into the ocean!
