Uh oh, shark gets close to swimmer off Manhattan Beach


A shark sighting was confirmed in the water off Manhattan Beach pier on Thursday, about a month after a man swimming in the same area was left injured when a shark bit him. […]

A Baywatch Redondo personal watercraft investigated and confirmed the sighting to be a juvenile white shark that was 7 feet long, another Lifeguard Division tweet stated.

The shark was monitored for 45 minutes and determined not to be aggressive or a threat, so no advisories to the public were made, according to the division.

Such sightings are common, the division said.
