VIDEO: It was a shark! “40 to 50 sharks” spotted in waters off Hua Hin
Video footage posted to Facebook on Monday afternoon claimed to show a shark in waters off Hua Hin.
The Facebook user who posted the footage claimed that there were between “40 or 50” sharks swimming in the water off Sai Noi beach in south Hua Hin, with each shark approximately 50kgs in size.
The footage was posted following claims on Sunday that a foreigner had been bitten by a shark while swimming at Sai Noi beach.
Footage of Sunday’s incident had since been removed from Facebook but images showed a western man with a serious injury to his foot.
However, despite the claims of a shark bite, local medics and people commenting on Facebook claimed that the injury was caused by rocks or the razor sharp barnacles which are found at some beaches in Hua Hin.
But this new footage, if legitimate would seem to point that sharks are currently present in waters off Hua Hin.
The footage from Hua Hin comes at the same time officials in Krabi confirmed that 10 black tip reef sharks were spotted hunting for small fish at Koh Hong.
The most recent images from Hua Hin also shows what looks like a black tip reef shark.
Meanwhile, the foreign man who was pictured with the injured foot suffered broken bones and required 41 stitches, the person posting on Facebook claimed.
