Bone chilling drone footage shows shark swimming just FEET from unsuspecting swimmers at Florida beach that has already seen several attacks

  • Pilot Robert Russ spotted the seven-foot shark while navigating the drone with his brother Thursday and began to curiously track it as it swam in Daytona Beach 
  • Then, they noticed that the shark began to approach two swimmers, who obliviously wave at the camera 
  • What is believed to be a blacktip shark starts to head for the pair, but then glides away, the swimmers none the wiser as to the danger they may have been in 
  • Russ told Fox35 that they weren’t the only ones: ‘It swam towards multiple people before realizing they were not food and moving on’
  • He noted that there have been many shark attacks in the Daytona Beach area in 2022 and he was scared for his subjects
