NAVARRE, Florida (WCSC) - Video of a hammerhead shark heading toward a Florida beach is going viral.

You can see in the video, which was posted on Facebook by Dan Flynn, that most of the crowd has cleared out of the water:

Those standing on the Navarre Beach Pier were trying to alert a lifeguard and woman who didn't seem to be moving.

Luckily, the shark turned before getting closer.

Flynn was standing on the Navarre Beach Pier just outside of Pensacola when he began video taping the tense moments.

The hammerhead is estimated to be anywhere from 7 to 10 feet in length. The shark eventually headed back out to sea.
