Shark bites teen on foot off Florida's Atlantic coast

Gavin Naylor, the program director of the Florida Program for Shark Research, watched the video and told CNN that they were probably blacktip sharks, which are common in the area. As he got his Mavic 2 Pro into the air, he spotted a shark moving towards his family.

In the second image his children can be seen running out of the water. "Definitely too close of an encounter for my liking!"

Watson showed the pictures to his wife Sarah as soon as she was out of the water.

Dan's wife, Sally Watson, explained that she wasn't really sure why she was yelling for the children to come out of the water when she told FOX35: "I was at the edge of the water and the kids were standing in the water and I was like, 'Get out, get out, get out.' I didn't know why".

'Thinking my [drone] is now coming with me to every beach day!,' Watson, who is also a videographer with a Youtube channel, posted.

"So, he immediately brings the drone to me and he shows me the frame of the drone and you see that shark swimming right at our kids - it was terrifying".

One of their little sons told FOX35 Orlando: 'The shark was scary!'

Florida recorded 16 unprovoked shark attacks in 2018, the most of any USA state, according to the Florida Museum of Natural History's International Shark Attack File.

In comparison, SC had 10 unprovoked shark attacks in 2017, while Hawaii had six.

Father flying his drone spots a shark lurking towards his kids playing in the ocean in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.

New Smyrna Beach is in Volusia County on the central east coast of the state, which has recorded the most shark attacks by far with 303.

When asked how his family was after the incident, Watson said his two young boys were more interested in shark photos, but his 9-year-old daughter was "scared" and "nervous".
