MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) — A very large visitor was seen cruising the shores of South Beach over the weekend.

Drone video captured a tiger shark swimming extremely close to the beach, and some unsuspecting beach-goers, near 4th Street on Friday.

Photographer Kenny Melendez said he was getting scenic shots when he noticed the dark figure slowly weaving in between some swimmers.

The brave souls stood their ground and the shark seemed uninterested, eventually swimming off without incident.

  1. “This shark swallow you whole. A little shaking, a little tenderizing, and down ya go!”

  2. There’s not much you can do in a situation like this other than not allowing yourself to freakout and flop around like a wounded fish. These beachgoers did the right thing. Re main calm.

  3. John McCall says:

    Once the tiger shark spotted those feet, did it then consume them, or just ignore them and swim away. What kind of feet were involved? How many were involved?
