Surbhi Sarna knew she had to take action. The Salmon shark had beached itself in the shallow waters at San Francisco’s Land End.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Then with a gentle push, the freed shark swam away.

 

However, marine biologists were not optimistic about its survival. Bay Area Salmon sharks -- named because they prey upon the Pacific Salmon -- are currently being ravaged by a form of a bacterial brain infection that causes beachings.

 

It is likely, marine biologists say, that the shark did not survive once it returned to the wild.
