DRONE footage shows the jaw-dropping moment a huge great white shark comes within several feet of a child on a paddling board. 

In the heart-stopping clip, the predator can clearly be seen circling the kid plus another surfer off the coast of Del Mar, California.

The incredible drone camera video was filmed by Scott Fairchild who regularly posts images of wildlife on Instagram.

 

The shark, which is bigger than a surfboard, appears to prowl around the child and the adult. 

He told Fox News: “I was following it and I hadn’t seen the kid yet. I saw the dad see it. Very calmly, he calls his kid over and says, ‘Hey look at this.’ 

“His dad starts to paddle closer and he points it out to him, and the kid has zero reaction. Like, ‘Oh cool.'”

Luckily the great white was not hungry for humans that day, because it left the pair alone. 

Underlying the dangers posed by the sharks, the Sun Online reported yesterday footage showing a great white shark" nearly knocking father and son out of their small boat while they were sightseeing.

It was filmed while dad Sean Vinar and his son James Vinar were watching sea lions off the north coast of Tasmania.

The pair had decided to visit a seal colony off Tenth Island which is 10km off the coast due to the calm water and good weather.

"We'd never been to the island before and we thought we'll go and have a look and film some seals, have a bit of a look then continue on and do some bottom fishing for flathead," Sean told ABC.

Sean, who has been fishing in the Tasmanian seas for 20 years, had driven their boat around the island before noticing that the seals were coming towards them.

And it is then that James took out his phone to film the herd of sea lions.

But suddenly, the pair were nearly thrown off their boat by a huge smash.

The pair immediately sped away but it is then that a huge shark tail came out of the water and smashed down.

SURFER MAULED

According to Sean, it was a great white shark that had rammed into their small boat.

Last month, a surfer was fatally mauled by a shark off Emerald Beach in Coffs Harbour, Australia.

Four ambulance crews and a rescue helicopter rushed to the scene after the man appeared to have his arm torn off in the savage attack.

Another surfer has undergone eight surgeries and spent two months recovering in hospital after his arm was ripped to shreds by a great white.

Joe Hoffman, 25, had a near-fatal encounter with the deadly beast on July 5 off of the picturesque Killick Beach in New South Wales.

Harry Maguire shows off brutal gash above eye after Man Utd captain was left bloodied from horror collision on pitch

HARRY MAGUIRE has been spotted at Winter Wonderland with a horrible gash across his eyebrow following a head clash playing for Manchester United at the weekend.

The Red Devils captain, 28, suffered the nasty injury during Man Utd's 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.

Maguire went up for a high ball with Eagles forward Odsonne Edouard late on in the game but ended up in a heap on the floor after clashing heads with the Frenchman.

Blood trickled down the face of the England centre-back, though he was deemed OK to finish the match after having a black bandage wrapped around his head.

But the after effects of the injury remain as he was seen with the cut still clearly visible while attending Winter Wonderland with his family.

Maguire wandered around with the gash evidently showing above his eye.

Yet the injury did not prevent him from helping Man Utd to their first home clean sheet of the season against Palace.

Meanwhile, Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany was also spotted at the Christmas extravaganza in Manchester.

The Belgian was snapped carrying a large amount of chips as he enjoyed an evening in the North West.

Maguire and Kompany never faced one another in the Manchester derby as the Englishman arrived in the summer of 2019.

That was just months after Kompany ended his decade-long spell with City which saw him win four Premier League titles and two FA Cups.

Maguire, though, is still yet to win a trophy in the two years since arriving at Old Trafford.

The closest he has come was against Villarreal last season when he watched on from the substitutes bench as United lost the Europa League final on penalties.

But there is a renewed faith that the Red Devils can bring the glory days back to the club following the arrival of highly-regarded German coach Ralf Rangnick.

Next up for United is a home game in the Champions League against Young Boys on Wednesday, although United have already qualified for the knockout stages.

They then travel to Carrow Road to take on Dean Smith's Norwich in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
