| by Sean Kelly

Two brothers bravely rescued an injured hammerhead shark at a beach in Florida (video below).

In the clip, brothers Marcus and Logan Lakos are surrounded by bystanders at a beach in Destin, Florida, while they attempt to save a hammerhead shark that had two hooks stuck in its mouth.

The Lakos brothers hold the shark down as they pry the hooks from its mouth, while others assist in making sure the shark remains still.

The frantic effort to rid the hammerhead of the hooks continues for several minutes before letting releasing it back into the water. The crowd can be heard cheering as the final hook is removed and the shark is set free.

Watch the intense rescue below.
