MADRID - Would-be beachgoers near Barcelona faced a brief ban after a shark scare shut down six beaches for a day, the Red Cross said on Wednesday. Credit: Getty Creative Three small blue sharks, between one and 1.5 metres (five feet) long, were sighted by lifeguards on Tuesday, prompting two local town halls to ban bathing from their beaches. The beaches in the resorts of Premia del Mar and El Masnou near Barcelona were closed on Tuesday and reopened on Wednesday morning, a local Red Cross spokeswoman told AFP. "A surveillance patrol in boats did not find the sharks," so green flags were flying again on Wednesday indicating it was safe to bathe in the sea, the spokeswoman said. Two Red...

He later realized his mistake when he saw the shark swimming toward him and the surfboard he was sitting on. Horton yanked his legs out of the water before the shark could take a bite out of him, causing the animal to chomp down on Horton's board instead. Falling back on his boxing skills,...

Instead of turning around and heading for the safety of the shore as most of us would do, Henderson instead went after the shark, pulling out her camera and doing her best to shoot footage of the fish. "'I reached for my camera, stuck it in the water and started paddling towards the shark in hopes to get it on film," Henderson said. The shark didn't seem interested in bothering Henderson as it swam right below her. "I would guess that the shark was at least 7 feet in size," Henderson said. ...

A veteran surfer went looking for sharks off Manhattan Beach in Southern California and found one, in an encounter that proved both thrilling and terrifying. #fivemin-widget-blogsmith-image-45335{display:none;} .cke_show_borders #fivemin-widget-blogsmith-image-45335, #postcontentcontainer #fivemin-widget-blogsmith-image-45335{width:520px;height:383px;display:block;} Mike Durand headed out on a paddle board, looking for sharks on Wednesday.

"Hopefully, he's not coming to get me." It wasn't long before...
