Heart-stopping footage has captured the moment a huge tiger shark attacked an unsuspecting kayaker off the coast of Hawaii.

He was heard screaming in terror during the terrifying ordeal – but luckily survived to tell the tale.
Recalling the horrifying events to KITV, Scott said he heard a "whooshing sound" coming at him rapidly.
He added: "I looked up and I saw this big brown thing. My brain thought it was a turtle but then I got slammed by it and realised it was a tiger shark."
The lucky bloke managed to escape after he kicked the toothy predator away.
Tiger sharks can grow up to 25 feet long, weigh up to 1,400 pounds and are said to be responsible for more attacks on humans than any species apart from great whites.
But despite this scary reputation, sharks rarely ever attack humans and would much rather feed on fish and marine mammals.
Scott fears the shark may have mistaken his kayak for a seal.
