    A father captured video of a shark swimming dangerously close to his children as they swam off Florida's Atlantic Coast.

    Professional photographer Dan Watson told news outlets he was flying the drone to take photos of his children last month as they swam off New Smyrna Beach when he spotted a shadowy figure. He yelled for his wife, Sally Watson, to get the kids out of the water.

    Sally Watson says she didn't know why he wanted them out of the water until he showed her the photo of "that shark swimming right at our kids." She says it was terrifying. Another photo captured the children leaving the water and the shark swimming away.

    On Sunday a shark bit a teen on the foot on the same beach.
