connectVideoRaw Video: Shark circles under the swimmer in Florida resort
Stan Fights to the film was the view from the 28th floor balcony when he noticed that a shark is stalking a conscious swimmer below.
A lone swimmer in the Gulf of Mexico was circled by a shark without her knowledge, according to a terrifying video.
Stan Fights reportedly took the video Wednesday morning from his balcony on the 28th floor of a resort in Panama City Beach, Fla., according to the Panama City News Herald.

The outlet reported Fighting had seen the shark for a few hours in cloudy water until he swam into a clearer area, that’s when the woman swam by. That is when he started with the filming of the shark.
“The woman is swimming right about this thing,” he told the outlet. “Directly about it.”
The two-and-a-half-minute video shows the woman swimming in the clear, green waters with a dark spot — the shark close behind her. The shark seems to be close to the woman as she swims unconsciously beside it.
“It was just a little bit crazy,” the Battles described. “Everyone on the beach, in the water, she had no idea.”
In the video, beachgoers can be heard, the woman shouts for her to come back to the coast. Some were heard shouting: “Shark!”
The woman is seen swimming in the direction of the shore, with the shark after her a bit, until it is shown to the other direction and swim away.
Battles told the Herald he ran down to the beach to talk with the woman, but she apparently never saw the shark.
“She was like I think I’m done with the ocean,” he said.
“I’m just glad that nobody got hurt,” Battles added.

The video comes just days after a man died in an apparent shark attack in Hawaii. The Maui Fire department said that the incident happened around 9 a.m., Saturday in Honokowai Point in the near Ka’anapali Beach Park on Maui as the man was swimming about 60 metres from the shore.
