VIDEO: ‘Life-saving’ drone pilot spots Great White Shark metres away from Bondi Beach


Drone footage has shown how a great white shark was swimming just metres away from unsuspecting swimmers off Bondi Beach in Australia.

Jason Iggleden who captured the footage, often flies along the beach to monitor surf conditions and spot potential dangers.

From his work, he started an app called Drone Shark which is used by beachgoers to monitor conditions from the drone footage.

Commenting on his work, Iggleden told the Guardian: “Potentially, I think on a couple of occasions over the past few years…we’ve saved a couple of lives.”

He went on to describe the app as a world first.

Iggleden is a builder who runs the app in the morning and works later in the day.

9 News in Australia detailed how in the footage, the shark can be seen eating a fish around 20 metres away from a swimmer.
