WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, N.C. -- Video shows a man being bitten by a shark at Wrightsville Beach last week when he went into the water to help a fisherman bring it to land, according to WWAY.

The fisherman caught the shark around 7:30 p.m. Thursday off the Johnnie Mercer’s Pier, WECTreports. Another man, who was not identified, swam into the water under the pier to help bring it to shore.
