An off-duty police office in Florida jumped into water to pull a boy away from an approaching shark. A video shared on Facebook by Cocoa Beach Police and Fire shows the predator fish approaching the young boy, who has not been identified.
As per the police “Cocoa Beach Police Officer Adrian Kosicki was off-duty Thursday evening, July 16, walking on the beach with his wife near the pier when they noticed a shark approaching a small boy on a boogie board. Adrian made the decision to quickly enter the water and pull the boy from the surf as the shark began to get dangerously close, within only a couple of feet at its nearest distance.”
Brevard County, where Cocoa Beach is located, has Florida’s second-highest number of shark attacks, according to the Brevard Times. Most shark attacks in the state occur during the months of July to October, when ocean temperature is warmest. But thanks to the cops like Kosicki, already saved hundreeds of lives.
