It is very unusual to find sharks close to beaches because of the number of people and also because the waters are shallow. However, recently a video posted on social media shows sharks swimming really close to a beach in the US and the beach-goers were lucky because it was spotted by others at a pier closeby.

According to a media report, the video posted by Myrtle Beach Getaway on Facebook shows sharks swimming unusually close the shore unbeknownst to the people at the beach near the water. The video was originally shot by Cody Kinzer while he was at the Garden City Pier a few miles away from the beach. There were around 8-10 sharks which is unusual because it was a larger number than when they are usually present around the beach.

The video has gone viral since it was posted and has got over 14 million views and over 2, 91,000 shares. The video has also help caution many frequent visitors to stay clear off the water and be alert before they become victims to it.
