In a scene reminiscent of the film Jaws, a shark approaches the shore of an Australian beach.

However, unlike the film, beachgoers don't flee from the fish, they wrestle it and attempt to coax it back out to sea.

The shark was also spotted in the shallow waters of a creek by frightened parents, children and tourists before finding its way back to open water.

Em uma cena que remete ao filme ‘Tubarão’, um tubarão se aproxima da costa em uma praia australiana.

O tubarão também foi visto nas águas rasas de uma pequena baía por pais, crianças e turistas assustados antes de seguir o caminho de volta para o alto mar.
