NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF/WYFF) – Swimmers in the Cherry Grove area were unaware sharks were just inches from them.
“Why I go to the beach to get in the pool! SHARKS!!!! Not one person had an idea of what was lurking around them. Can’t see the bottom, not swimming in it! #doodoodoodoo,” Gilmer wrote.
According to NBC affiliate WYFF in Greenville, Gilmer said that she did not share the pictures to make anyone hate or harm the creatures. She added that she has received messages from people who are unhappy with her.
Gilmer said she took the pictures from the 15th floor of a resort. She highlighted dark spots in the photos which appear to show the sharks.
As of Wednesday morning, Gilmer’s photos have been shared almost 24,000 times.
