That was pure luck for the viewer/photographer in the cage at time to escape unhurt!! Best example why +Shark Society does NOT promote or participate in cage diving, baiting or chumming! 
Plain and simple: It does alter the natural behavior of the animal! A #GreatWhiteShark would never attempt to enter this cage if not baited!

Whale Shark cooperates with the diver saving him. A diver stumbles across a whale shark trapped in a commercial fishing line. Sensing the diver is there to help, the Goliath lies still while the rope is cut.

The only great white shark to currently be held in captivity has died, just three days after it arrived at Japan’s Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium.
The 11.5-foot adult male, featured in a “Sea of dangerous sharks” tank, died on Friday (Jan. 8), according to an announcement from the aquarium.
The captured shark, a male, was relatively small, and had appeared to be doing well, swimming with several other sharks, but suddenly weakened and sank to the bottom of the tank. Efforts to give it oxygen in a separate special tank failed. It had refused to eat any food since being caught.
