According to The Sun, a shark was observed in shallow water near a beach in Malaga, Spain, forcing visitors to rush towards the shore after the fifth sighting off the country’s coasts in a month. The sighting of the shark was the fifth time a shark was spotted in the last month.
According to Emily McEwan, who was on vacation with her family in Malaga at the time of the event, it took place on June 27. She explained to The Sun that she was in the pool when she suddenly felt a shiver run down her spine.
“At that moment, I looked to my right and noticed a tail fin. “At that point, a lifeguard appeared, and he seemed to be going up and down for a considerable amount of time,” McEwan explained.
She also mentioned that the shark was in relatively shallow water for around half an hour before it swam away. She stated that upon spotting the shark, everyone raced out of the water, and thankfully no one was harmed in the process.

This comes when there have been numerous reports of shark sightings close to coasts in the United States. On July 4, at least two people were swimming in waters off the coast of Long Island, New York, when sharks presumably attacked them.
Before this, two shark attacks were reported on famous beaches in New York. After the incident on July 4, officials stated that over 50 drones were seen in a popular beach park.
Videos had recently emerged from two beaches in Florida — Perdido Key Beach and Navarre Beach — showing sharks swimming perilously near to swimmers, which sparked widespread fear among beachgoers.
