When this shark was spotted swimming close to shore in Australia -- one brave beachgoer took direct action and moved it back into deeper waters. The two-metre Dusky Whaler shark was spotted on Friday at a local beach on Queensland's Sunshine coast, causing some panic. (SOUNDBITE) (English) TOURIST TASH KIMLIN SAYING: "It was pretty scary, yeah I was just calling out to them and they couldn't really understand what I was saying." (SOUNDBITE) (English) TOURIST TASH KIMLIN SAYING: "Do you think you want to get back in the water again?" (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNNAMED YOUNG GIRL SAYING: "No!" But another tourist said he didn't think twice about getting back into the water. (SOUNDBITE) (English) TOURIST LIAM MURIE SAYING: "At first, sort of, but now no. It's too good not to miss." After being moved back into the sea, the shark stayed in the area for a while, before swimming further out. Local media reported that the shark was likely sick, and that's what made it swim so close to shore.
