According to Yahoo! News, a mother inadvertently took a photo of her twins swimming on the shore in Manhattan Beach, with a large shark lurking nearby beneath a breaking wave.
This shocking photo was believed by lifeguards and local surfers to be a shark and the 12 year old kids were not aware of the great danger near them. June Emerson, the mother, told her kids that it was just a dolphin, since they live at the beach and are swimming here almost every day. She posted this photo in her Facebook account and has received a lot of comments. Most of them believed that it was real. Some even believed that it was a great white shark, as it is relatively common to the area.

Last November, there were paddle boarders who have captured a video of the same incident in the same area. The video was taken 50 yards from the shore. After these incidents, people are terrified by the thought of sharing a space with these deadly predators, but then the California Department of Fish and Wildlife issued a warning to leave the sharks alone for the protection of these creatures.

But then, Emerson treated that incident as just another beautiful day at the beach. “Big waves and apparently Big Fish!”, as she wrote on her Facebook page.
