A woman spent her birthday in the Bahamas and came within just a few feet of every ocean swimmer’s worst nightmare, a large eight-foot shark. But the shark must have known it was her birthday as she swam directly into the path of it.
Miami resident Iso Machado was celebrating her birthday on a friend’s yacht, which came equipped with an inflatable slide. A video was taken by her son as she went down the slide and plunged into the ocean just as the shark can be seen entering the area.
A friend was filming the encounter and shared the terrifying footage on Instagram. While he told her not to panic, the unexpected birthday guest bumped into her and then went on his own way. Check out the video below!
