[Ed. – The shark died. “Corrective measures” are being taken.]
A shark has died after a group of tourists dragged it out of the water to take photographs with it.
In a video posted online recorded in the Dominican Republic, a group of men race into the water before pulling it onto the beach with ropes.
Some of the people were reportedly lifeguards from the nearby Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana.
The shark then appears to become tangled in the ropes of a life ring and thrashes violently.
Lifeguards then appear to put a life ring over the shark’s head and prod it with a plank of wood.
