Tourists filmed the shark from their 10th story condominium
Tourists visiting Orange Beach, Alabama, filmed a massive hammerhead shark as it swam and thrashed about in shallow water just feet from swimmers.
Catarena Peek told Fox 10 News that she and her boyfriend, Alec Deshotel, filmed the shark from the 10th story beach condo they rented.
“This is the first time we have ever seen anything like this for sure,” said Deshotel, “I look out the window...and there it is. Massive 10- to 12-foot hammerhead, whatever it is. I don’t know but it was a big one. We don’t know how big it was but it was massive.”
As the huge shark chases stingrays in the shallow water, you can see people scramble to get out.
Peek said, “There was some man down there screaming that there was a shark. And I guess they finally saw the dorsal fin and they realized how close he started getting so they started jumping out of the water as fast as they could.”
Peek said it was the second shark they’d seen from their balcony.
“I just ended up videoing it, and it was a really cool video. So I just posted to Facebook thinking a couple hundred of my friends would find it kind of cool. And then all of a sudden, I looked down at my phone and it was over 100,000 views. I was like, Oh, that’s pretty cool.”
