Video shows a hammerhead shark chasing a stingray near the beach in Orange Beach

JAWAL, Ala (Walla) – A hammerhead shark appeared in Orange Beach Monday morning. The huge creature swam close to the shore and was caught on camera chasing some stingrays.

The video has nearly 30,000 views on Facebook.

Katharina Beck said that she and her boyfriend Alec Dehutel come to Orange Beach every year, but this will be an unforgettable trip for the Texans.

Dehutel said, “This is the first time we’ve seen something like this for sure, looking out the window… and there it is. The massive 10 to 12 foot hammerhead, whatever it was, I don’t know but it was big. We don’t know how big it was but it was huge.” “.

The huge shark showed its speed by chasing stingrays in the shallow part of the bay. In the video, a few people rushed into the water to get out.

He peeked, “There was a guy out there screaming there was a shark and I think they finally saw the dorsal fin and realized how close he was, so they started jumping out of the water as fast as they could.”

Peek said she started recording because it was the second shark they saw from their ten-story balcony at just 10 a.m. Her video went viral on Facebook very quickly.

“I just finished videotaping it and it was a really cool video so I just posted on Facebook thinking a few hundred of my friends would find it kind of cool and then all of a sudden I looked at my phone and it ended up being 100,000 views and I was like, Oh, that’s so cool.”

Peek and Deshotel said vision didn’t prevent them from getting into the water. Peek is a certified diver and has said she has swam with sharks her whole life. Deschuteuil said he saw sharks while fishing in the deep sea. However, this was the first for both of them.

“A once in a lifetime kind experience for sure. It was really cool to watch,” the couple said.
