The two-meter animal was spotted on Saturday near the beach in Les Barcarès, in southern France bordering the Mediterranean Sea.


David Simian, the beach's chief lifeguard, said a precautionary evacuation was ordered after a dark figure was seen in the water. He said: “The rescuers lifted the boat and saw that it was a shark. It was a blue shark, which does not pose a danger to humans.

Blue sharks rarely bite people, but the rescuers raised a red flag and forbade people from swimming.

David explained: “It was made to protect the animal and prevent swimmers from approaching. People had already begun to gather at the water's edge, so we cleared the area as a precaution.”

Swimming was banned for one hour, according to local news sources.
