It took mere seconds for his boat to sink in shark-filled waters

Adam Wiseman was fishing with his friend, Troy Cooper, in the Atlantic Ocean near the North Santee Bay on Saturday morning when an ice box caused his boat’s weight to shift. The boat flipped. And within seconds, Wiseman was in the water along with a school of hungry sharks and the 300 pounds of jellyfish the men had on board their craft before it capsized. But The Captain Andrew and its crew were nearby when the boat sank. The crew rushed to their aid, saving not only Wiseman and Cooper, but also Wiseman’s boat.
