Woman Plunges Off Slide Into Sea Before Spotting Shark Right Beside Her

Woman Plunges Off Slide Into Sea Before Spotting Shark Right Beside Her

A woman accidentally ended up close to a shark after plunging into the ocean from a slide on a yacht.

Iso Machado, from Miami, Florida, was celebrating her birthday in the Bahamas with some pals on a friend's boat last week when she decided to have a go down the slide.

As she whizzed down the slide, a crew member caught the attention of her son's friend Kevan Sarota, 22, who was filming and pointed him in the direction of a dark shadowy figure under the water.

In the clip, you can clearly see the outline of a shark, thought to be a nurse shark, that appears just a few feet away from where Iso is splashing out.

Her son Anthony shouts to him mum to remain care, which she, somewhat miraculously, managed to do.

The clip has been shared on social media where it's racked up more than 3.4 million views.

Kevan said: "As she was going down one of the crew members yelled and pointed from the deck below which caught all of our attention.

"As the shark approached, we couldn't figure out what type it was."

He said the group were initially fearful when they spotted the shark, explaining: "We were worried and immediately jumped in to make sure Iso was OK when it changed directions, but she remained calm and it bumped her then continued on its way."

However, he said that Iso was actually pretty chuffed by the experience, adding: "She was actually really happy and felt lucky to see one so close."

Meanwhile, over in the US last week, a police helicopter managed to spot a 10ft great white shark swimming just metres away from a popular beach in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Posting the clip on social media, Massachusetts State Police wrote: "The Massachusetts State Police Air Wing provides an important service every summer in helping patrol the waters off Cape Cod beaches for great white sharks in the vicinity of swimmers.

"On Saturday, in the early afternoon, the crew of MSP helicopter Air 4 observed two great whites about 50 yards offshore at Newcomb Hollow Beach in Wellfleet.

"The flight crew advised local police of the location of the two sharks.

"Swimmers were already out of the water because of an earlier sighting that morning, but based on MSP Air 4's additional confirmed sightings, the order to stay out of the water was extended.

"This video, taken by Air 4, shows one of the great whites, estimated to be about 10 feet long."
