You are paddleboarding next to 15 great white sharks! – CA police warn beachgoers
California paddleboarders found themselves in what resembled an outtake from ‘Jaws’ when the chilling announcement was made that they were just metres from a school of around 15 great white sharks.
In helicopter footage taken by Orange County Sheriff’s Department, the creatures’ forms, which the aircraft’s occupants observe are 10 feet (3 meters) long, could be seen through the clear water just off the California coastline.
A loudspeaker announcement could be heard coming from the helicopter saying that the area is “heavily populated at the moment with large great white sharks” and that the creatures have come “as close as the surf line”.
The paddleboarders are then advised to “exit the water in a calm manner”.
