Her boyfriend was filming her with a drone as she was swimming unaware that a 5-foot blacktip shark was swimming up to her with the intention to strike!
The Instragram post reads:
So this happened yesterday! While filming my girlfriend @helenpalacios with my drone a shark came close to tasting her. What I think happened was that the shark confused her fins for a fish, but then as soon as it realized it was a human it quickly backed off. The poor water visibility confused the shark. This is how most shark attacks happen in Florida specially this time of year when sharks like the blacktip are migrating through the Florida coast following schools of fish. Sharks aren't man eaters they're just carnivores who make mistakes like we do. Helen and I will continue to explore our beautiful ocean
