VIDEO: It was a shark! “40 to 50 sharks” spotted in waters off Hua Hin

Video footage posted to Facebook on Monday afternoon claimed to show a shark in waters off Hua Hin.

 

The Facebook user who posted the footage claimed that there were between “40 or 50” sharks swimming in the water off Sai Noi beach in south Hua Hin, with each shark approximately 50kgs in size.

 

 

The footage was posted following claims on Sunday that a foreigner had been bitten by a shark while swimming at Sai Noi beach.

 

Footage of Sunday’s incident had since been removed from Facebook but images showed a western man with a serious injury to his foot.

 

However, despite the claims of a shark bite, local medics and people commenting on Facebook claimed that the injury was caused by rocks or the razor sharp barnacles which are found at some beaches in Hua Hin.

 

But this new footage, if legitimate would seem to point that sharks are currently present in waters off Hua Hin.

 

The footage from Hua Hin comes at the same time officials in Krabi confirmed that 10 black tip reef sharks were spotted hunting for small fish at Koh Hong.

 

The most recent images from Hua Hin also shows what looks like a black tip reef shark.

 

Meanwhile, the foreign man who was pictured with the injured foot suffered broken bones and required 41 stitches, the person posting on Facebook claimed.

Oh no !

Well there goes that school of sharks

They will catch & sell anything

You only have to go & buy raw Prawns & end up with half of them having eggs ( no wonder the seas can't restock )

Yep shark. There are small sharks off koh tao. They swim with divers and no problems. Just don't stick your hands n feet in their mouths.

A place to avoid it seems...but does it have something to do with the season or did these boys just drop in by chance ?

Looks like Thailand has the worst doctors in the world if they cannot differentiate between a rock and a bite - but then I guess TAT money talks bigger than reality

Must mean the water is clean enough to swim in.  I will take wildlife over pollution any day.

I know this is a stab in the dark, but has anybody asked the person who was injured what happened? Why so quiet on this front?

 

I could almost guarantee he will know the difference between being bitten by a shark and being injured by rocks.

Now that really promotes tourism - well done. Swiping it under the carpet with "rocky affairs" rather than addressing the shark problem = welcome to Thailand!
