Video shows the shark became stuck on the railing of the boat and was thrashing about in an effort to get back into the water. 

The large shark's mouth became covered in blood as it tried to bite through the railing.

The people on the boat can be heard in the video talking about how they can safely get the shark off the boat.

Finally, they were able to get it back to sea after some tense moments.
