Aggressive Hammerhead Shark Circles Kayakers Prompting Closure Of SoCal Beach.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A shark has been spotted in the waters off a San Diego County beach for the second time in two days, prompting lifeguards to extend an advisory warning beachgoers of the shark sighting. San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesman Lee Swanson says the beach will remain under a “shark advisory.” That means lifeguards will warn beachgoers about the Saturday sighting of the 8- to 10-foot hammerhead shark.The sighting was caught on camera by a kayaker and prompted lifeguards to evacuate the water and close the beach to thousands of swimmers for 24 hours. “Hammerhead sharks are known to be dangerous to humans, especially the larger ones,” said San Diego Police Lt.

Andy Lerum. “In certain places in the world, they are very dangerous.” This is the second close encounter with a hammerhead shark in recent days in the area.
