People paddling in Florida totally unaware of shark just metres away

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water.

IT’S NOT JUST the deepest darkest ocean that holds fearful beasts, it’s the shallow paddling areas too.

This video was filmed from an apartment above a beach in Destin, Florida. The hammerhead shark appears to be pursuing a stingray, veering dangerously close to people paddling.

Last month swimmers at another beach in Florida were warned to get out of the water after a fisherman spotted a hammerhead making a beeline for the shore.
