Watch: Great white shark destroys dive cage, cameraman inside survives unscathed

The diver was initially inside the cage when the shark breached the enclosure.

If you've ever dreamed about climbing into one of those "shark-proof" cages to see a great white shark up close and personal, this video might have you rethinking your dream.

In the video, which was shot off Mexico's Baja California Peninsula, a great white shark is first seen grabbing some bait attached to a long pole. The massive creature lunged at the bait and its momentum drove the shark into and through the metal bars on one side of the cage.

Since sharks are not capable to swimming backwards, the gigantic fish is seen thrashing around inside the cage. Eventually, after the top of the enclosure was opened by deck hands, the shark found its way out of the metal cage and swam away.

Seconds later, a diver with a professional camera rig is seen popping up from inside the cage. He reportedly escaped through the bottom and waited until the great white shark swam out of the top of the cage before returning and climbing to safety on the boat.
