WATCH: Beachgoer-surgeon gives dead shark a C-section to save its three pups

Wow, talk about a fruitful vacation!

An American family found a dead shark on a beach in Cape Town, South Africa. But when they looked closer, they noticed that something seemed wrong.

While they couldn't put a finger on what exactly was strange, they guessed that the shark was probably pregnant.

The beach-goer then used a knife to slice open the shark with the intention of saving its pups.

The video, uploaded by YouTuber Beth Cordell, shows the 'surgeon' was uncertain whether there were babies inside after he sliced open Mama shark.

But when something starts to move, he digs in further - only to find three baby sharks.

He then performs an impromptu C-section to save them before throwing the pups into the ocean.

The "shark surgeon" even said in the video: "I'm not sure I really want to save a shark, to be honest. My father was attacked by a shark."

Well, we're glad he did.
