Helicopter crew warns paddle-boarders about nearby sharks

In Orange County, people enjoying the water were told via a helicopter loudspeaker to make their way to shore due to a group 15 sharks, which can be aggressive, in the area.

Last month, a woman was bitten by a shark while surfing at San Onofre State Beach and suffered severe injuries.

"We haven't had any reports of anyone being bumped or charged, just observations of them either swimming or breaching", he said.

Chris Lowe from the Long Beach Shark Lab joined "Take Two" last week following the shark attack off San Clemente to explain the recent shark activity along the SoCal coast.

Evans asked the crew, "What was the response of the people in the water?" He said the sharks are believed to be juvenile great whites.

Numerous sharks appear to be juvenile great whites - six to eight feet long and about a year old.

A total of 25 great white sharks have been spotted along the coast since Monday. "The sharks are as close as the surfline".

But while it might seem like sharks are becoming a bigger threat, experts say the opposite scenario is closer to the truth. He said they lingered most of the summer and then disappeared.

From San Diego to Long Beach, three separate notices were issued to swimmers Wednesday, alerting them to the presence of sharks.

Shark sightings actually aren't all that uncommon. "Within six feet of the surfer, its tail flipped and it made a circling motion around him", a lifeguard told The Orange County Register. But California State Parks developed a shark advisory system, which involves the placement of signs along the water's edge.

Santa Ana police corporal Jeff Van Es, who flies alongside Stockbridge, advised ocean-goers to know the environment they're entering. "They've been protected in USA waters since 2005", Lowe explained. Six days later, her physicians reported that her recovery was progressing well, particularly considering the severity of her wounds and resulting blood loss.
