Two small sharks drew a crowd of onlookers as they wrestled in the shallow waters on the shores of on Okaloosa Island, Florida, on June 26. One woman is seen in the video getting close to and splashing at the sharks.

Stephanie Stevens Adcock, a tourist from Arkansas, recorded the footage of the three sharks (one can be seen further in the water) as they swim in less than two feet of water. They don’t seem to scare the beachgoers, however, as multiple people of all ages can be seen approaching the water beside the sharks.

The animals appear to be between five and seven feet long. Adcock, who shared this video on her Facebook profile where it gathered over 11,000 views, indicates that she was incredulous that the woman, seen splashing water towards the sharks, wasn’t bitten.

Her post reads: “*SHARKS* on Okaloosa Island, Ft Walton, FL up close and personal!!! This happened TODAY about 1 hour ago!! As you can see from the video they were in very very shallow water. BE CAREFUL folks that are vacationing on the sunny beaches. […]How the lady (the one splashing them...what??) didn't get bit I. DON'T. KNOW!!...”

No injuries were reported overall.
