Mom's video captures shark just feet away from her daughter


Imagine recording your young child playing in the waves, and catching a shark on camera. That’s what happened to Sheri Gouveia, who said she was recording a video of her daughter, Anela Rezentes, at Kalama Beach in Kailu, Hawaii, when the girl suddenly ran from the water and shouted that she’d seen a shark. Gouveia reviewed her footage and discovered the shark had indeed come within inches of her daughter. Experts reviewed the video and said it appears to be a blacktip shark, a species known to hunt for fish in shallow water. They say the girl was likely not in any danger from the shark.
