Cape Town – A bride nearly lost her husband after only one day of marriage when a group of thrill-seekers got far more than they bargained for.

On Thursday a group of friends went shark diving off the coast of Gansbaai in the Western Cape. But one great white, which must now have a very sore head, decided to ignore the strategically placed bait and head straight for human food.

The man closest to the great white’s face just manages to swim under the gaping maw. This diver, known only as Roger, had tied the knot only the day before.

The great white shark then seems to get its head stuck in the bars of the safety cage and thrashes around in the water.

In all the confusion it is impossible to tell what has happened to the divers in the cage, but after a nervous few moments they bob to the surface  unharmed.
