Shark hitches ride on boat

A group of Florida boaters spear fishing and lobster diving said they received the shock of their lives when a 5-1/2-foot bull shark jumped up on the deck of their 21-foot vessel. Michael Powers said he and his friends were boating on a 21-foot vessel Saturday off Haulover Beach, Fla., when the 5-1/2-foot bull shark jumped onto the vessel, WSVN-TV in Miami, reported Monday.

"We're all scattering for cover trying to get up on the deck and out of anywhere we could, just to be safe," the young skipper said.
