Boy, 13, reels in massive 3.5metre tiger shark

A 13-year-old boy has reeled in a huge tiger shark off the Gulf of Mexico measuring more than 3.5 metres long.

Micah Harless, from Texas, was on a 36-hour boat trip, which ended Monday morning (local time), with his dad Robbie Harless when he made the 382kgs catch in Port Aransas.
