CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- A little scare for a family visiting Carolina Beach last week.

A YouTube video dated Sept. 14 shows some children with their boogie boards in shallow water. Right after they get in, one of the kids notices a shark swim by just a few feet away, which sent her running for shore.

A post to the blog Carolina Beach Today from a woman who says she's the mom in the video says the family was a little scared to go to the beach the next day.

Sharks

You can tell that this isn't a hoax or spam, just a video to show and warn what a little shark can do or where it can be. What if you were the one out there, in knee deep water with a 5 ft long shark? You'd either feel amazed or shocked, not stupid. I have read comments where people think that sharks are stingrays, but there's no way that was a stingray. I've been in 20 ft deep water with a 6 ft long reef shark. Trust me, it's not very pleasant. Enough with the stupid comments, jerks.

OMG...they are still in the

OMG...they are still in the water after Labor Day? Those tourists are going to drive our wildlife crazy.

Sharks and Labor Day

You know very well that sharks do not have a holiday or a certain season to be found. For Pete's sake, sharks are very likely to be found in the middle of December!

Dolphins

You know that very well could have been Dolphins... it was 2 of them...

Dolphins?

There's no way that could have been a dolphin, when you pause it the second time you see it in the water near the end of the video, you can see the dorsal and tail fins. Definitely a shark.

Crazy

Sharks in the Ocean?!?!?! What is this world coming to!

Bear!

Bears! Every one run to the water!

IGNORANT PEOPLE

THATS WHERE THEY LIVE YOU IDIOT..

THEY WERE HERE WAY BEFORE US..

THE COPS SHOULD HAVE GOT OFF THERE ASS AND CAPTURED THE SHARK AND

TOOK HIM SOMEWHERE ELSE.

ATLEAST NOONE GOT HURT

cops rant

Who is "noone"? Sorry he got hurt. Seriously, Sounds as if you were spending your time doing something else when it was time to study English. Secondly, the police are not shark ropers.

Haha Ignorant???

Are you kidding? When did it become the police officers job to hunt and capture sharks?

I wonder why the local cops

I wonder why the local cops didn't show up and tell the kids to drag it from the water?

LOL

LOL... good one!

Because this was during the

Because this was during the day and the cops were still drinking their coffee and eating donuts.

You people who write some of these comments are so stupid. The local law enforcement officers had nothing to do with a shark swimming down the beach. Check yourself in to the oaks, maybe they can help you.

Boring....

At the very least, can you try some original material? I would bet a glass of tea and a slice of corn bread you're the first to call 911 when Daddy makes you turn out the night light. Time to grow up cowboy.
