    A local man caught a hammerhead shark on camera at Island Beach State Park, N.J.

    A shark sighting at a South Jersey beach was caught on camera by a New Jersey cinematographer.

    On August 2, Mike Ragone just happened to have his camera with him when his girlfriend spotted a hammerhead shark swimming off the coast of Island Beach State Park.

    "It's a one in a million shot," Ragone told New Jersey 101.5.

    Ragone posted his video on YouTube 11 days later and the video has swimmers a little freaked out about hitting the water.

    "You can't pay me enough money to go in the water right now," Ragone told 101.5.
