A huge shark was spotted circling an oblivious woman who was swimming at a Florida beach.

Stan Battles was vacationing at Panama City Beach when he saw the shark swimming in sea grass from the 28th-floor of a condo.

He took his phone out and recorded the terrifying moment on Tuesday.  

A huge shark was spotted circling an oblivious woman who was swimming at a Florida beach. The shark is then seen swimming just a few feet away from the woman before beachgoers are heard shouting: ‘Shark! Shark!’

In the video, the woman is seen enjoying the water when the shark swims out of the sea grass. 

Battles is heard in the video saying that ‘whatever it is, it’s following right under her’.

The shark is then seen swimming just a few feet away from the woman before beachgoers are heard shouting: ‘Shark! Shark!’

As the people on shore yell to alert the woman of danger, the shark turns directly in her path. 

Once the woman realizes what the people are saying, she starts to swim in the opposite direction toward the shore. 

In that heart-stopping moment, the shark continues to swim directly behind her until she makes a turn. 

The shark is then seen swimming back into the ocean as the woman makes it safely to shore. 

Battle told the Panama City News Herald that after capturing the encounter on video he ran down to the beach to find the woman. 

He said he showed her the video and the woman told him that she ‘never saw it’.

‘She was just like, “I think I’m done with the ocean.”‘
