Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is a popular tourist destination in the summer. For an 11-year-old girl swimming at the beach, her vacation left her with a close encounter and a cool story to tell her friends.
Sara runs out of the water in disbelief. Fortunately, the shark that was apparently stalking her was rather small, perhaps just a few feet long. The small dorsal fin and the very shallow water wouldn’t allow a full-sized great white shark or another large shark to swim in the area. She probably encountered a young shark.
