Boy Was In The Water By Himself! Then THESE Creatures Approach and Creep Up Behind Him!

It has long been said that Earth’s final frontier is the vast oceans that cover a majority of the planet’s surface.  An estimated 95% of the oceans have yet to be explored and it seems that every time a deep sea probe is sent to the depths, new species are discovered.  From gigantic bus size whales to microscopic transparent shrimps and all the fish in-between, there’s a whole other world under the seas! 

The ocean is certainly filled with creatures of every sort and size, but the one thing universally feared above all else is far and away sharks.  The stealthy apex predators are more than capable of inflicting great bodily harm or even death, and when you step into the ocean, you’re in their house.  Even though shark attacks on humans are rare, every year dozens of people get bit. For one little boy swimming in the Bahamas, he could have easily been among them.  However, a guardian angel of sorts stepped in and brought the boy to safety before any harm could come to him.  

Artem Tkachenko had been flying his drone over a beach in the Bahamas on a sunny December day when he spotted the young boy swimming in shallow water below.  The idyllic scene was interrupted when a school of four sharks approached the child and appeared to be headed straight towards him. Seemingly unaware that he had company, Artem yelled to the boy telling him to run and get out of the water, which he quickly did.  Once the boy had both feet safely planted on the warm sandy shore, the sharks simply turned around and swam off.  

If Artem had not warned the child, who knows what would have happened and it just goes to show how incredibly close encounters between sharks and swimmers often are.  Even when you’re in crystal clear shallow water, just feet from the shore, there could be a shark nearby that you fail to see. Being extremely agile and fast swimmers, they can easily close in on a person before they even have time to react.

Other people who have found themselves in similar situations to what the young boy was in have not been so lucky.  Thankfully, there are several ways to help prevent and limit your risk of ever getting bit by a shark. They include not swimming at prime feeding times, dusk and dawn, not wearing metallic jewelry that is believed to resemble fish scales, and to avoid going in the water if you have an open cut or wound.  For more information on shark attacks and what scientists believe may incite a shark to bite, please refer to the video. It’s always good to arm yourself with knowledge and the points that it covers are quite interesting.
