Take a look at the picture and decide for yourselves what one California mom captured in a photo taken last Friday at Manhattan Beach.
It doesn’t appear to be a dolphin, as she told her kids it was, but that’s probably because June Emerson remembers, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat” and all.
Brody: Is it true that most people get attacked by sharks in three feet of water about ten feet from the beach?
Emerson took the picture of her son Quinn, 12, and a friend surfing in front of a breaking wave, but it wasn’t until they were driving home that they saw the creature that photobombed off to the side of the boys, the New York Daily News reported.
“It was quite a shock to see,” Emerson told KTLA News.
“Many local surfers and lifeguards have seen this and believe it to be a shark,” she continued. “Of course, I told my kids it was dolphin, as we live at the beach and are in the waters here almost daily.”
According to KTLA, “Sightings of great white sharks are not uncommon near Manhattan Beach.”
Consider this video shot and published on YouTube last month at Manhattan Beach by paddleboarder Jay Dohner who wrote, “I had four different sightings of at least three different sharks.”
“There are two different things in your head,” Dohner reportedly told the Los Angeles Times after his sightings. “Wow, that’s beautiful,’ and ‘We should get out of here.’”
