A visitor to North Myrtle Beach spotted sharks lurking near swimmers in the ocean below her hotel balcony and has the pictures to prove it.

Ginger Gilmer from Tennessee was high above the action when she captured the photos.

“Not one person had an idea of what was lurking around them,” she wrote on Facebook.

”It was the craziest thing I have ever seen! People had no idea. Just wasn’t sure if it was appropriate to yell shark from the 15th floor and cause a panic,” Gilmer wrote as an explanation for not warning the South Carolina beachgoers.

Gilmer said on Facebook that there are three different sharks in the photos.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
