A drone has captured a great white shark swimming within inches of surfers paddling through the water in South Africa. Luckily no one was injured by the shark who was just investigating the surfers, according to Sarah Waries from the City of Cape Town (CoCT) Shark Spotters program.
The shark was spotted by drone in Plettenberg Bay in South Africa’s Western Cape Province on Tuesday. The video sent out a warning to many around the area to be extra cautious when in the water, especially those venturing out a little further.
Waries shared that the shark was aware of the surfers above and was just checking them out due to their inquisitive nature. Waries added that shark bites are rare, but people must understand the risk of being in the water with an Apex predator.
Shark sightings have increased over the last few weeks around South Africa’s Western Cape Province with authorities asking surfers to get out of the water at Robberg, Plettenberg Bay on Sunday, at Boneyards, Jeffreys Bay on Monday, and again at Robberg, Plettenberg Bay on Tuesday.Video Player
Prosecutors are investigating the actions of two Buffalo police officers who were suspended without pay on Thursday night after a video showed them shoving a 75-year-old protester, who was hospitalized with a head injury.

About 8,200 gallons of hydrochloric acid leaked from a tank at a Kennecott facility in Magna following Wednesday morning’s earthquake.
Unified Fire Authority Chief Dan Petersen said most of the chemical, which leaked out of a 12,000-gallon tank, was contained to a catch basin in the facility. It was fully contained within the Kennecott building, he said.
Officials were concerned that the chemical would mix with another chemical and become more hazardous, but that was not the case Wednesday, Petersen said.
A chemical plume dissipated from the facility but was flowing north over the Great Salt Lake and did not impact the public, Petersen said.
UFA crews have turned the scene back over to Kennecott personnel, but six hazmat crews were remaining at the scene to monitor the situation, he added.
