The incident happened on Aug 22. along a stretch of beach in Oak Island.

Woosley told Storyful one of the men in the footage removed a hook from the shark’s mouth
He also shared a photo showing one of the men holding the shark’s mouth open.
After the hook was removed, the beachgoers released the shark back into the water.
Some people commented on the post voicing their concern about the shark but Woosley said the two fishermen had caught it, removed the hook, and put it "right back in the water."
“Really they did the right thing,” Woosley said in a comment under his original Facebook post.
