Great white shark jumps from sea into research boat, becoming trapped on deck for more than an hour.

Enrico Gennari, [an expert on great white sharks], said it was the first time he had heard of a great white shark jumping onto a research vessel. He estimated the predator would have had to have leapt about three meters out of the water to be able to land on the boat. A smaller vessel would have capsized, he said.
