A police officer jumped out of business hours in Florida into the ocean to enter a boy in a jig, after seeing a shark swimming toward the child.
Cocoa Beach Police Officer Adrian Kosiki was walking along the beach with his wife when they noticed a shark approaching the boy in the shallow off the beach,
The police shared a video of pedestrians showing a shark fin chopping off the surface of the water while swimming toward the boy.
Hey my friend! Hey, there is a shark, ”one of the viewers says before other shouts,“ Here it is! ”
Police said a quick-thinking Kosice jumped into the water, grabbed the boy’s hand, and pulled him through the waves to the shore as the shark swam “near danger”. Kosuke and the boy reached safety on the beach while the shark was swimming within feet of them, according to the video.
The sharks were not immediately clear.
“We are certainly not marine biologists, educated and trained to differentiate between different types of sharks and their feeding and aggressive habits near swimmers,” the police wrote. “We are doing our best – protecting the public from harm
Florida is experiencing the largest number of shark attacks during the months of July, August, September and October, when the water temperature rises and human activity in the water increases, according to the Brevard Times newspaper.
According to the newspaper, Brevard County, where Cocoa Beach is located, has the second largest number of shark attacks in Florida behind Volusia County. Volusia County, home to Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach, is known as the capital of the shark bite in the world.
