Family has close encounter with sharks at Smyrna Beach


See Click Orlando

A New Smyrna Beach man recorded video of sharks just feet from young swimmers over Memorial Day weekend and posts it to YouTube, where it’s gained more than 7,000 views.

The video shows the danger lurking off the coast in waist-deep water, right off of New Smyrna Beach Inlet.

“I noticed a bunch of dark shadows in the water and I thought, ‘Wow, this is interesting, I wonder what this is,'” said Steve Anest. “It became apparent just by their signature shape that they were sharks. Sharks were everywhere. In a second, if I would’ve fallen off, or she would’ve fallen, that’s where the fear came in.”
