THIS is the terrifying moment a group of sharks circled beachgoers – with one lurking underneath someone’s raft.
Jacqueline Lesso was on a boat in Florida last month when she said she and her friends spotted something circling in the water nearby.
While celebrating Memorial Day, Lesso spotted several hammerhead sharks swimming in shallow water near her boat.
She took out her smartphone to record the rare shark spotting.
Lacey Faciane, Casie Thompson, and Qyuston Eubanks said they were relaxing on a float when they too saw the nearby animals.
“One boater would yell shark and then the next group would yell shark, and that’s just kind of how it was,” Faciane said.
“And so by the time they got to us, they were right up on us.”
Mostly everyone was excited to spot the sharks, except for Eubanks.
“I was like, ‘Lord protect us! If it’s time for us to go, it’s time for us to go. Just protect us,” Eubanks said.
On the other hand, Faciane said seeing the group of sharks was “an awesome experience.”
“They were right up on the shore. I mean we were in at least knee-deep water so they were right up on shore, and they just swam around the boat, and then left.”
The supposed seven sharks were about eight feet long, according to the witnesses.
The creatures eventually left after swarming the boats.
“Usually you have to pay for that and we didn’t have to pay for that,” Faciane said.
“It’s very rare to have a group of hammerheads just swim by you so it’s kind of a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing,” said Thompson.
