Drone Footage Shows Sharks Swimming Near New York Beach

Sharks were seen lurking less than 100 feet off the coast of Southampton, New York, on the morning of July 27.

Jodie Steidle, who recorded this footage near Little Plains Beach, said the sharks were feeding on a huge school of bunker fish, which can be seen toward the end of the video. The Southampton Police said they received several reports of sharks feeding on the same type of fish on nearby beaches.

“In seven years of flying drones commercially in the Hamptons, I have never captured sharks this close to shore,” Steidle told Storyful.

On July 20, the Southampton Police said in a press release they were aware of the increase of sharks in the area and monitored the situation “every day.” Credit: Joanna Steidle via Storyful
