A woman got up close to a shark as she joined it in the shallows at a beach in Naples, Florida, while she was searching for sea shells and sand dollars.

Footage by Bethany Morris that was shared to TikTok shows the shark swimming close to the shore on Vanderbilt Beach.

“Damn, it’s shallow,” a surprised Morris can be heard saying in part of the footage. Morris told Storyful she took the video on August 1. Credit: Bethany Morris via Storyful
