GARDEN CITY BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) – A video taken from the Garden City Pier has received nearly 2 million views on Facebook and tens of thousands of shares.
While it’s not breaking news that sharks live in the ocean, a video posted by Cody Kinzer of King, North Carolina shows just how close a group of sharks got to the shore Tuesday afternoon.
Kinzer shot the video from the Garden City Pier while visiting the area.
The video shows two sharks swimming together, and brushing against the shoreline where beachgoers appear to be watching the sharks swim by.
A group of three sharks can be seen swimming under the pier near the end of the video.
Reactions to the video on Facebook differ. Some Facebook users commenting with, “…sharks…in the ocean…weird,” while others say videos like this are “why I don’t go in that water!”
“It was awesome to watch!” Kinzer said.
