VIDEO: Off-duty officers pulls boy away from approaching shark

COCOA BEACH, FL (WWAY) — A boy escaped a close encounter with a shark thanks to a police officer, and it was caught on camera.

An off-duty Cocoa Beach police officer was walking near the pier on Thursday when he noticed a shark approaching a small boy on a boogie board.

He quickly got into the water and pulled the boy from the surf as the shark began to get dangerously close, within only a couple of feet at its nearest distance.
