Video shows 8 sharks swimming near Myrtle Beach

Posted May 17

— Cody Kinzer, 20, of King, was visiting family near Myrtle Beach when he stumbled upon a shocking scene -- about 10 sharks swimming just feet from the beach.

Kinzer said he and his girlfriend were fishing on the Garden City Pier when they saw a group of people looking down toward the water.

"I've never seen anything like this before," he said. "We saw 5-foot, 6-foot sharks, really big sharks, swimming just feet from shore."

Kinzer said people on the beach were already aware of the sharks and had gotten out of the water.

"One guy tried to go back in, but then a shark darted at him and he backed out pretty quickly," he said.

Kinzer said he counted eight sharks in his video, but his girlfriend saw more sharks on the other side of the pier.

"I've been there plenty of times and I've never seen anything like this," Kinzer said.

    They have been everywhere down there the past couple of years that I have gone, last year was not as bad as two years ago. But hey, we are swimming in their house.
