DURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA – Beachgoers are being warned to be cautious on the coast of South Africa after a drone video showed a great white shark frighteningly close to a group of surfers who were unaware of its presence.
The incredible drone footage caught unsuspecting surfers waiting to catch a wave as a man-eating great white shark swam right below them.
The predator – estimated over 10 feet in length – swam below the six surfers and a lone kayaker who had no idea that a lethal attack could be just seconds away.
The remarkable drone footage taken in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa, was filmed by Zachary Berman, 14, who was on the beach with his father.
“We normally fly the drone to capture nature and I was monitoring the shark to see how close it got to the surfers and when I saw it was heading towards them informed my dad to get them out the water,” said Zachary.
“He was on his way to get them out and by then the shark was moving quite fast. When the shark goes underneath the boards Sea Rescue hadn’t arrived yet. It was really scary standing there with the remote control watching this shark head towards the surfers. You don’t really know what to do in that situation.”
