Shark that fell on the golf course

(Scroll down for video) Several people who were playing golf, suddenly saw a shark fall down from the sky, according to reports.

People were playing at the golf course in Southern California, when a shark that measured about two feet long, fell from the sky and dropped around the tee 12.

The 2-pound leopard shark was apparently removed from the ocean by a bird and was dropped on San Juan Hills Golf Club, Melissa McCormack, director of club operations, said Thursday.

Nobody was hurt when the shark fell Monday afternoon, although some players just left the area, she said.

A course marshal, who makes sure that players maintain an appropriate pace, saw something moving around the tee and went to investigate. He found the shark bleeding with puncture wounds, where the bird had held it with its feet.

The marshal put the shark in his golf cart and headed back to the clubhouse.

"He went above and beyond," said McCormack.

Quarterback, McCormack and Bryan Stizer wanted to help the little shark, so they put it in a bucket of water. Then someone remembered that it was not a freshwater animal, so we used sea salt from the kitchen.

"We knew it had to go to the sea as soon as possible," McCormack said.

We took a photo of the shark before we directed it back towards the sea.

"When Brian put it in the water, it was not moving," she said, "but then it turned around and left."

It is the first time anyone could remember a shark falling from the sky on the golf course.

"We have the typical coyotes, skunks and the occasional cougar, but nothing like a shark," McCormack said.
