A scuba diver used his speargun to fend off a great white shark that got a little too close for comfort in a video that's gone viral.

The footage, taken off the east coast of Florida, shows a fin smacking the camera as the shark swims past Jimmy Roseman.

It reappears, and Roseman stabs it with his speargun after it turns on him.
