The boat was almost capsized by the shark. As the shark thrashed around, its weight cracked and snapped more and more of the boat. One man slipped off of the boat. He fell into the wide mouth of the Megalodon. Gary and another man tried to help. However, these attempts failed, and the shark swallowed the unfortunate man. It was then Alan figured out the beast's weakness...
"Hurry!" He ordered, "Shoot a couple of flares into it's mouth!" The men did as Alan ordered. They shot two flares straight down the shark's mouth. Smoke started to emerge from the shark's mouth as it swam off. The boat fell back down with a large splash. It was over, for now.
The following morning, the men discussed how to destroy the shark. After a bit of disputing, it was decided: an underwater expedition.
The materials the men had to work with weren't the best, but they believed killing the Megalodon was possible with a couple harpoons, a shark cage, and a couplem of pipe bombs. Once everything was loaded up, Alan and Gary offered to enter the cage.
The water was deep, but clear three miles away from the shore. Reports of two attacks and one casualty from the shark near the shore were reported, and it was heading their way. However, Alan and Gary were prepared. Each man had a harpoon and a pipe bomb. They waited about ten minutes, and the shark still didn't show up. It seemed that the shark wouldn't return.
However, after another five minutes of waiting, the shark struck. It attacked from below and almost swallowed the cage. Alan fired a harpoon at the shark's nose, landing straight into it. The shark's attack weakened a little. As it regained its strength, Gary threw his pipe bomb at the shark. It landed near the left set of gill slits and detonated. The explosion hurt the shark's gills, causing it to swim away, but only after three more harpoon shots.
After ten minutes, the shark returned. Now, it rammed straight into the cage. This broke some of the bars as it latched its jaws onto the cage, crushing it like a pop can in its jaws. Gary swam out, but Alan threw his pipe bomb into tthe shark's mouth before exiting. As the men resurfaced, bomb detonated, and the shark cage was destroyed by the Megalodon's jaws.
The men were pulled up. They lost a few supplies, the harpoons were the only saved items. However, they did learn the shark's weakness: explosions.
