Father, daughter encounter hammerhead shark off coast of Sunset Beach

SUNSET BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- A Garden Grove father and daughter encountered a hammerhead shark while they were fishing off the coast of Sunset Beach Sunday afternoon.

Robert Wagner, owner of Wagner Charters, said Orlando Cosme and his 14-year-old daughter were searching for yellowtail when they snagged a 10-foot Hammerhead. Cosme and Wagner ended up wrestling with the shark for a few minutes.

The family and Wagner shared the story, which was all caught on camera, using #ABC7Eyewitness.

Everyone was OK, and Cosme summed up the experience with a simple "Wow."
