Helicopter warns California paddleboarders they're next to sharks

Screen grab from a video shot by the Orange County Sheriff's Department of Great White sharks off the coast of Dana Point, California, on Wednesday, May 10, 2017.

"We've had quite a sharky situation down here in South Orange County and up in Long Beach", says Register Beach Reporter Laylan Connelly.

ABC News posted a video, showing just how close the sharks came to the beach. In it, Deputy Brian Stockbridge warns a paddleboarder via loudspeaker that, "You are paddleboarding next to approximately 15 great white sharks".

Paddle-boarders off the coast of California had a shock, after a shark alert was issued to them by police helicopter. If a grown shark bites a person, it usually realizes its mistake and quickly retreats.

Other groups of sharks were also spotted offshore the same day, with beachgoers warned they would be swimming at their own risk.

May says not taking local election triumph for granted
If the scale of Theresa May's victory in Britain's local elections was startling, so too was its geography. Time and again the phrase they use is that those around Jeremy Corbyn must "own" any defeat.

Not long ago, they saw a 14-foot shark about 100 yards from the beach at Capo Beach.

Mature great white sharks in the region - which regularly can grow up to 18 feet long - largely keep away from the shore and stick to the open ocean and islands, such as Catalina, Channel and Farallon. "What we do know, from a variety of different types of analysis, is that many species of sharks are decreasing in population at alarming rates". And this was 50 miles north of Capistrano Beach.

Abel added that, to date, there have been no reports of aggressive sharks in Long Beach. This increase has been mainly driven by protection from fishing pressure (juveniles end up as bycatch in fishing nets) beginning in 1999 in California, and the recovery of marine mammals whose numbers have been climbing since they gained US protection in 1973, Lowe said.

"For a great white shark, a seal is a big juicy steak with a slice of chocolate cake", she said.
