Watch Police Warn Unaware Paddleboarders That They’re Surrounded By Great White Sharks

Getting eaten or attacked by a shark is probably the worst fear of anyone who has ever been in the ocean. Can you imagine how you would react if you were swimming in the ocean and realized that a group of great white sharks was surrounding you?

That’s what happened to a group of paddleboarders who were swimming in the ocean off the coast of California. A helicopter crew flying above them in the sky noticed a group of more than a dozen sharks swimming near them and warned them immediately to get out of the water.

“Attention in the water, attention in the water. This is the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. Be advised, State Parks is asking us to make an announcement to let you know you are paddleboarding next to approximately 15 great white sharks. They are advising that you exit the water in a calm manner. The sharks are as close as the surf line. Thank you for your cooperation,” Deputy Brian Stockbridge said to the paddleboarders through a microphone from up above.

Lifeguards who witnessed the situation explained that although it was scary, the sharks were not acting aggressively and were small in size, measuring at roughly eight feet long.
