_Off the coast of South Africa, a team of researchers was out studying shark populations when, apparently, a great white shark looked to a do a little studying of its own -- breaching the waves and flying aboard the researchers' boat. On "The Early Show," Oceans Research team leader Dorien Schroder recalled the ordeal. "It had been a bit quiet around the boat for a few minutes, and I heard a splash," she said. "And it's a splash that I recognized as usually a shark breaching out of the water. So I turned around to see it, only to see a live shark in mid-air above one of my interns."
_The intern, Schroder said, stepped toward her. Schroder said, "Later, (my intern) said, (she did that) because she thought I would know what to do, so I could grab her by her shirt and pull her onto the platform that we have on the stern of the boat right before the shark landed, actually, in the boat." She added, "And all my other interns, as soon as the shark landed, actually joined me at the stern of the boat, and I calmed them down. And when the shark also calmed down, that's when I realized, now I just need to get this shark back into the water."
