Drone Captures Moment Four Sharks Surround Boy—And Things Could've Been Much Worse

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

A video making its way around the internet shows a young boy playing in the shallow water at a beach in the Bahamas. The entire scene unfolds from overhead. Moments after the boy jumps into the sea, four sharks appear — and swim straight for the child. Seconds before the first shark reaches him, the boy steps out of the water to safety.

It's pretty intense.

Videographer Artem Tkachenko happened to be operating a drone nearby. When he noticed what was happening and realized he was the only one who could see the danger, he yelled for the boy to run.

Tkachenko captured all of it with the drone and posted the video to YouTube.
