Chilling Drone Video Shows Tiger Shark Charging At Swimmers
Chilling video recorded by a drone flying over a beach in Australia shows a tiger shark slowly patrolling the water’s edge among many people swimming in the ocean.
The video was recorded on the beach by Hillary’s Dog Beach near Perth, Western Australia, and shows the large predator swimming patiently a few feet away from unsuspecting bathers, the New York Post reported.
Sam Wood, whose drone captured the shocking video, said it worried him.
“I was scared it might be an attack, and obviously I was very scared,” Wood told Australian media.
Wood said once he noticed his drone capturing video of the deadly ocean predator swimming so close to people, he ran to encourage everyone to get out of the water.
In 2022, Australia had its first fatal shark encounter in February when a man was killed near a Sydney beach. The latest shark attack in Australia happened in October when a shark bit the boat of a 19-year-old kayaker. The boater was not injured.
According to a website that tracks shark attacks, there were 89 shark attacks worldwide and 20 in Australia in 2022, including one fatality. In contrast, there were 45 in the United States with one death.
