Beachgoer Tina Fey noticed the beast suddenly appear while a group of people were swimming, according to a post on Facebook.

Tina explained that wildlife personnel and lifeguards near the group allegedly said there was nothing they could do to help the shark and that they took matters into their own hands.

“We took action to put him back in the water as wildlife officers and lifeguards told us there was nothing they could do!! So we did our best to save him!!,” she wrote.

Three men could be seen pulling the shark’s tail and turning it in the water so it could face the sea and swim away.

Several witnesses were heard claiming the animal was dead as it appeared to be unresponsive.

However, a few moments later it started moving and swam away as the men made it back to the beach.

Tina’s husband Josh explained the situation to her in detail WKRG.

“We were sitting on the beach just having a good time, and my buddy was like, ‘Look in the water, man.’ I see that fin and I thought, yeah, it’s two or three sandbars away from us,” he said.

“Finally it just turned to the left and came straight toward shore, and I said, ‘That’s a big shark coming in.’ And we thought it was hunting for bait or something, but it came to shore and got stranded.”

He added: “It took four of us to get into the water. I hope that anyone else who comes to the beach and sees an animal in distress like sea turtles or something similar will help them.”

As The US Sun previously reported, beachgoers on Hilton Head Island, just a few states away in South Carolina, also captured footage of a shark near shore devouring another predator.

In a video shot by resident Katy Albright, a shark moved to attack what looked like a stingray near the shore, according to an outlet in Savannah, Georgia WSAV.

“Shark versus a stingray on a beach on Hilton Head Island,” one photo caption reads.

Albright was heard saying it was “unbelievable” as the waves crashed over the shark and stingray.

Although it is unclear exactly what type of shark it was, younger great white sharks and lemon sharks are known to feed on stingrays For the win.

Florida International University One study also found that tiger sharks and hammerhead sharks eat stingrays.

The clip of Katy was posted online on WSAV’s Facebook page and sparked several comments.

“I hope someone could help them out of this sand!!” wrote one concerned commenter.

“Too close to shore for my taste!” another said.
