The horror, the horror.
If there is one thing that unites all humans, be they Antifa or Proud Boy, Brexiter or Continentalist, it is the nightmare of being chased by someone, or something, and only being able to run in very slow motion.
Well, a New Zealand man lived our collective horror in real life.
There he was, enjoying a warm summer’s day at the popular Ōhope Beach with other revelers. Warm water, beautiful sun but… SHARK!
The shout went up and the man looked over his shoulder then started that very slow motion run. The fins get closer, man running slow, stuck in quicksand, absolute nightmare.
Did he survive?
Let’s ask Phil Squire who caught the whole action with his 15-year-old daughter Eliza. Word had been spreading that sharks were present but that didn’t stop the Squires from getting it.
“(My daughter) was a bit nervous, she was definitely staying on her board with the possibility of sharks and stingrays around … but I think it added to the excitement. We did a lot of surfing around those beaching but weren’t dipping our toes in, in case they got nibbled.”
The possibility of sharks and stingrays adding to the excitement of surfing? Very brave and maybe she can life coach Pip Toledo or other professional surfers who need a jolt.
In any case, the shout went up and Phil Squire saw the man freaking out, trying to run, and make it to the beach.
Eliza filmed with a steady hand.
He made it will all toes intact though acted panicky.
Not brave like the young Squire.
