Golf club employees in Southern California came to the rescue when a shark dropped out of the sky and flopped around on the 12th tee.

San Juan Hills Golf Club operations director Melissa McCormack says a course marshal found the leopard shark in the afternoon of Oct. 22 and brought it to the clubhouse. It had puncture wounds where it appeared a bird had snagged it from the Pacific Ocean, about 8km away.

They stuck the approximately 1kg shark into fresh water before somebody remembered it came from the sea, so they got some sea salt from the kitchen and mixed it in.

Another employee rushed the shark to the ocean where McCormack says it was very still for a few seconds before twisting around and speeding off.

當一尾鯊魚從天而降,在十二洞發球處附近拍扭著身體時,南加州高爾夫球俱樂部的員工及時出手營救。

聖胡安山高爾夫俱樂部營運主任梅麗莎.麥柯馬克說,一名球場巡場員十月二十二日下午發現這條豹紋鯊,然後將牠帶到俱樂部會所裡。牠身上有啄刺傷,顯然一隻鳥從八公里外的太平洋叼走牠。

他們將這尾重約一公斤的鯊魚放入淡水,直到某人想起牠來自大海,他們又從廚房拿來海鹽,將之溶進水裡。

另一名職員趕緊將鯊魚送到大海,麥柯馬克說,牠在海上直挺挺地靜止數秒,然後周身扭動、快速揚長而去。
