A beachgoer managed to capture quite a scene off the coast of Florida over the weekend.
Kara Skonieczny shared her video on Saturday of the “excitement” of at least two sharks feeding on baitfish at Neptune Beach in Jacksonville.
In his fast clip, we see a dorsal fin appear in the breaking waves, then another.
The two sharks nearly crash into each other in the shallow water as a child squeals into the camera, then shouts, “Whoa! Get out of the water!”

The species of shark is unclear.
Skonieczny’s friends and supporters were duly concerned:
“Is it close.”
In effect. News Jax 4 reports that there have been other sightings of sharks dangerously close to shore in the same area. On Saturday, a man’s leg was injured in the water, but it is unclear what happened to him. On Monday morning, about 20 miles away, a shark was photographed thrashing off Ponte Vedra beach.
Jacksonville Beach Ocean lifeguard Maxwell Ervanian told the outlet that people should use “situational awareness” when swimming.
