OCEAN CITY, Md. — Beachgoers spotted this shark in Ocean City, Maryland. This video was shot near 27th Street. Several sightings have prompted authorities to temporarily close parts of the beach.The shark appears to be about 8 feet long.
According to the Ocean City Beach Patrol Captain, it’s a hammerhead. They say it swam around the sandbar just off shore in water that was only 3 feet deep in areas.
The shark was about 20 feet off shore when this video was shot, but people who were on the beach say it swam even closer at times.
