A diver had a lucky escape when a shark suddenly attacked his GoPro camera.

The beast nearly nearly made off with the gadget as John Hornback filmed during a dive off the coast of Belize.

The underwater camera captured the moment the predator lashed out, revealing its powerful jaws millimetres from the lens.

The footage initially shows another diver with a dead fish on the end of a spear, which apparently interests the shark.

But as the animal examines the bait and circles the divers slowly, it suddenly changes direction and ploughs towards the diver filming the scene.

The screen briefly goes completely black as the shark's jaws envelop the camera, before it quickly swims off.

It then examines a number of other divers at close range before other sharks appear on the scene.
