Family Notices Something Unusual About Beached Shark's Stomach, Cut It Open (VIDEO)

When a couple came upon a beached shark along the Atlantic coast recently, they recognized that the animal was dead. What they did next might surprise most people, the Mirror reported.

Beth and Lindsey Cordell noticed the 6-foot fish had been impaled with a hook, which the beach strollers began to remove. That is when they spotted something stirring inside. “The shark started moving like crazy,” Lindsey recalled. “We quickly realized that it was pregnant and its pups were still alive.”

The Cordells, with the assistance of others on the scene, quickly got to work, cutting the three baby sharks from the womb and taking them into the ocean. The couple’s 13-year-old son, also named Lindsey, recorded the action. Though the footage is bloody and gory, it shows people coming to the aid of little animals that never would have survived without help.

The Mirror noted that sharks have all their teeth at birth, and are ready to swim as soon as they are on their own. That is an important skill, since mother sharks tend to eat their offspring.

The clip’s description on YouTube states: “This video is a good example of respect to all forms of life. … You cannot help but admire the beach goers that helped the baby sharks live a life in the ocean.”
