VIDEO: Swimmers' close call with large hammerhead shark at Florida beach
**WARNING! EXPLICIT LANGUAGE**
Story by VICTORIA PRICE /CBS 12 NEWS
DESTIN, Fla. - Scott McCain was enjoying his spectacular ocean view from his resort balcony with some friends last week in Destin, Florida.
He started videotaping the ocean when a large hammerhead shark appears in the water in front of him.
The large shark darts forward, swimming dangerously close to the two people in the 'knee-deep' water.
The shark appears to be chasing a small stingray for food but all within feet of the two swimmers.
Unsure if the swimmers could see what was going on, McCain and friends start yelling to the swimmers below, "SHARK! Get out the water!"
The swimmers bolt to the shore when realize what all the yelling was about after the shark attacked his lunch just feet from them.
