Girls Surrounded By Sharks

How would you like to be these girls?:

STRANDED on a rusty piece of sunken ship, these two teenage girls were forced to watch helplessly as two sharks circled them for 40 minutes off a NSW beach.

The 14-year-olds thought they were going to be fish food as they waited to be rescued at Byron Bay on Wednesday.

The girls, who regularly swim out to the sunken ship known as The Wreck, were horrified to see a shark, followed shortly after by a much larger predator, when they had clambered on to the structure.  [Daily Telegraph]

They ended up being rescued by a lifeguard boat, but I’m sure they will think twice about getting in the water any time soon.
