|Hammerhead shark near swimmers in Destin, Florida|
At about the 25 second mark, we can clearly see that the hammerhead is pursuing a stingray which just happens to be fleeing towards the two swimmers.
At the 40 second mark, the hammerhead makes several abrupt moves to grab the ray causing some large splashes. This in turn gets the attention of the two swimmers and we immediately see them running for shore.

The video was obviously shot from an older phone and is not the best quality but it was still interesting to see the events unfold as we don't often get the chance to see sharks hunting in the natural world. The video was posted by Scoot McCain and is just over a minute in length. Related-earlier this month we shared a similar video that was shot from a pier near Pensacola, Florida.
