".... until authorities pushed the vicious beast into deeper water."  How did they do that?!

Just boats. 

But this is far more interesting.

Witnesses told authorities that the seven-foot juvenile great white shark bit the anchovies-and-sardines bait on the hook a fisherman had thrown into the water from the edge of the Manhattan Beach Pier. They said the shark was hooked for about 45 minutes and was thrashing around in the water when he bit the swimmer about 9:30 a.m.

Most sharks are harmless to humans.  

Yeah, this is a really unusual situation, right?

Seems almost perfectly timed to coincide with Shark Week, too.
