  1. They need to close down these beaches that are too close to nature. When the state leaves them open people assume the beach is safe.

  2. Idk why, but this makes me think of that scene in “jaws” when the mother confronts the Sheriff and says “ you knew there were sharks in the water”

  3. If you're going to swim in the ocean , BE CAREFUL and for Godsake's at least take a pizza or a bucket of chicken out with you to feed to the sharks!

  4. Sorry,for his loss,but,the media needs to explain food,and why we need it,why we are the only real big food,around,close to shore,warm water, causes the bait fish to move further out,I guess they are gone,now,too..last time I went to the mullet festival, 7 yrs ago,there were none,thanks,for the lack of educating the public til it's too late,sounds,like a republican trick?how many vets die a day,from suicide?tell me,everyday,please,as an American it's ridicules, a guy was attacked this summer,just 4 miles from that area,it would hurt tourism,but,you made that choice, and it's sad,money?or education to save lives?

  5. I refer all shark attack victims to the boat captain speech to couper in jaws the movie…. you go in the water…. the sharks in the water….😑

  6. ! ! ! – > > > WARNING : Stay in waist-deep water = BAD ADVISE…the media in their infinite wisdom endangers the public.
    Sharks attack in waist-deep water…look it up, NBC

  7. shark feeding ground during shark season without protection (shark repelent or the shocking thingy) the guy knew the risk rip surfer dude the ocean is defenatly scary place and very vast one

  8. Some liberals will just have to find a way to blame this on Trump.
    Heck Maxine Waters will want President Trump impeached for this.
    Reason number ♾<—- infinity symbol for common core students.

  9. This was nature's fast food. Not ideal cuisine but when you're hungry you'll eat anything. But shark has the right to Stand His Ground.

  10. This is why man wasn't supposed to go in the ocean. Because there's things that will eat you I don't even like going in the lake and touching seaweed.

  11. More people get killed by vending machines and toilets than sharks. They’d rather swim away then bite you. You’re more likely to die walking to the beach or swimming

  12. I feel like eating more shark fin soup now.
    I mean how dare the shark pick on one of us. They shall face the wrath of the human race!

  13. When you feel something nibbling at your body, don't thrash just make a super slow mo getaway if u can. I donno if this would work but hey maybe

  14. Let me guess I'm somehow some way this is Donald Trump's fault. he he used his shark controlling device to attack people after using his weather device to send his Godlike power to attack the coast. I guess we should start sacrificing some Democrats to appease the god Trump.

  15. I only swim in the ocean in Florida. I know there are sharks there too, but the cold, dark, murky water up north just doesn't seem as safe. I live in Mass, and it is well known that lots of great whites hang out in our waters. If most bites are truly mistaken identities, logic says the murky water would be worse.

  16. we have to be getting close to full time aerial beach monitoring right? In the past planes and helicopters were certainly too expensive to keep on station all day, but with drone technology now I bet they could have all-day coverage on at least the most popular beaches. If local government can't do it, it might be an interesting adventure for an entrepreneur….just think, a small fleet of pre-planned drones with cameras (few hundred bucks each) you can already see people following sharks with them all over youtube…then a phone app where you can access the video feeds from the drone fleet at your beach of choice that day (for a $10.99/month fee of course) plus a security guard-like staff member who monitors the feeds throughout the day just waiting to put out an alert to all the connected users if he spots anything. could be useful to beach goers and lucrative as a business.

    Biggest hurdle: FAA and any local ordinances?

  17. Most humans eat other animals everyday… Occasionally it happens the other way around… must have been a brave guy to go swimming in there.. Swimming in any open sea would be out of the question for me.

  18. Thanks to a huge increase in the seal population there, Cape Cod has become prime hunting grounds for Great Whites. But I still go swimming in the ocean whenever I visit there in the summer months. Shark attacks are extraordinarily rare, and when they do happen, it's almost always by mistake — sharks often mistake surfers and boogie boarders for seals. That's why they're rarely fatal. The shark takes a bite and is like, "wait a second — that's not a seal" and moves on. Of course, if that one bite slices through an artery, you're in trouble, but again, a mortal wound, like attacks themselves, are pretty rare.
