SANTA MONICA– On Wednesday, beach dwellers at the Santa Monica Pier were fortunate enough to capture a violent shark attack on tape. Bystanders were observing the scene from the shore before running up to the pier in order to get “unobstructed footage.”
Corey Gabriels, a self-identified shark fanatic, described his unfortunate experience.
“Right when I got some amazing footage, the shark leapt up and snatched the camera from my hands,” said Gabriels. “My only regret is that I don’t have the proof on tape. Also, I don’t know where I’m going to find another VHS camera.”
Along with the camera, the shark managed to grab Gabriels’s arm.
“You know what? I take that back. It’s the arm. That’s my biggest regret.”♦
