In addition to the sheriff's helicopters, there were secondary reports from people on the beach who saw a shark breach, the Register reported. Stockbridge recommended that swimmers "exit the water in a calm manner". "The sharks are as close as the surfline". A couple people were out paddle boarding when all of the sudden, the police showed up because SHARKS ALSO SHOWED UP.

"Please do not enter the water", the deputy warned.

A shark sighting prompted a safety warning Wednesday at a North County beach where a swimmer was gravely injured less than two weeks ago in an attack by a great white or similar large sea predator.

The sharks were spotted in the vicinity of a recent shark attack that left one woman injured, but alive. Above, a great white shark that presumably did no such thing.


About 15 Great White sharks were spotted in the waters off Capistrano Beach in southern Orange County Wednesday. Experts estimated the shark was at least 3m long, judging from the bite marks.

Another group of 10 great white sharks were spotted off Long Beach.

Along with the O.C. Sheriff's Department, authorities at Camp Pendleton urged beachgoers to steer clear of the water. Six days later, her physicians reported that her recovery was progressing well, particularly considering the severity of her wounds and resulting blood loss. Doctors are hopeful the injured - Leeanne Ericson, a mother of three - will walk again.
