paddleboarding next to approximately 15 great white sharks
But that’s exactly what beachgoers in California heard broadcast from a helicopter loudspeaker as they paddleboarded in the waters off Capistrano Beach in Orange County on Wednesday.
Lifeguards “are advising that you exit the water in a calm manner. The sharks are as close as the surfline,” Orange County Sheriff Deputy Brian Stockbridge is heard saying on a video shot from a helicopter overlooking the beach.
