A newly-released video depicts the harrowing moment a great white shark confronts a kayaker in California’s Monterey Bay.

The shark knocked the kayaker into the water during the terrifying encounter, which took place this March. The victim can be seen flailing in the water as the shark swims nearby.

Gene Mace Jr., who filmed the incident, can be heard in the video asking his wife to call for help.

“That person just got knocked out of his kayak by a shark,” Mace says in the video. “See his kayak, a shark’s pushing it around…It’s swimming towards the guy now.”

Eventually, a family passing by on a sailboat was able to rescue the victim from the water.
