Former NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal was underwater inside a steel cage filming “Shaq Does Shark Week” when a shark busted in.

Teaming up with up with comedian Rob Riggle, O'Neal is seen submerged in the custom-built 'Shaq Cage,' standing 12 feet tall by 6 feet wide and fitted with windows for better viewing.

During filming, one of the sharks manages to squeeze through bars and gets into the cage with Shaq, who’s deathly afraid of sharks.

There were professional marine biologists with Shaq who were able to remove the shark from the cage without anyone getting chewed on.

After getting out of the cage, Shaq said: ’I survived a shark attack, you b**ches!'

After taking a few minutes to recuperate, O'Neal got right back into the cage for another dive.  

Shaq is hosting a whole week of shows for “Shark Week” on The Discovery Channel.
