The event was caught on film and shared to a number of social media websites.

A hook was discovered in the shark's mouth, which the men removed prior to freeing the animal back into the ocean from Capistrano Beach.

Still a baby, the shark reportedly measured between 3 and 5 feet in length.

In the video captured of the event, onlookers can be heard cheering as the small shark swam off into the ocean.
