The shark circles the swimmers who were completely oblivious

TikTok

A beachgoer shared an unsettling TikTok video that shows two women swimming in the ocean – plot twist: a shark was circling the pair and they were completely unaware.

Connor Seitz (@cseitz2281) filmed the nerve-racking moment from his hotel room at Panama City Beach, Northwest Florida.

The video shows the two swimmers in the ocean with what appears to be a shark approaching them. The shark initially started to swim away before changing direction towards the women.

“Oh my lord”, the TikToker is heard saying.

“If she looked down right now she would be...”

Before he could finish his sentence, he noticed that the shark was getting closer to the oblivious swimmers, “It’s circling them”, he pointed out, “Oh s**t!”

The women had no idea... TikTok

The terrifying clip has since received an astounding 36.9 million views and racked over 60K comments, with one TikTok user suggesting that their cluelessness was the best thing for the pair. “Them being oblivious is the best thing that could have happened”, they said.

While other users humorously put themselves in the shark’s perspective. One said, “Shark POV: I wasn’t gonna do it I was just thinking about it.”

While another joked, “Shark was like: Omg, I’m so quirky.”

“Shark was like... Don’t be suspicious, don’t be suspicious”, one user added.

The TikToker responded to criticism for not warning the swimmers; he said: “We didn’t yell because we didn’t want to cause them panic and potentially aggravate the shark. We were also on the 23rd floor. They would never have heard us.”
