A shark swims near onlookers in the Belmont Shore neighborhood of Long Beach

The incredible moment United States police officers made an emergency call to California paddleboarders hanging next to more than a dozen large great white sharks swimming around them has been caught on video.

Sheriff's video obtained by the Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/2qXxB32 ) shows about 15 sharks swimming near paddleboarders Wednesday at Dana Point south of Los Angeles.

The pilot then informs beachgoers that lifeguards advise them to exit the water "in a calm manner".

A 48-hour warning was issued off the coast of San Onofre beach on Wednesday after an aggressive shark was spotted in the water near where a Vista woman was attacked two weeks ago. Above, a great white shark that presumably did no such thing.

It will run only software downloaded from the Windows Store, a limitation that Microsoft touts as a security benefit. But making its own PCs puts Microsoft into competition with the companies it relies on to build Windows devices.

The Long Beach Fire Department's Marine Safety Unit estimates that 10 to 20 juvenile sharks swim in the area daily due to its "thriving aquatic ecosystem". The sharks were spotted swimming within 50 yards of the beach, which drew a crowd to the coast.

OC Lifeguards Chief Jason Young told the Register people on the beach reported seeing a shark breach and had reinstated an advisory Thursday after dropping it the day before. Six days later, her physicians reported that her recovery was progressing well, particularly considering the severity of her wounds and resulting blood loss.

Doctors were attempting to fix nerve damage to restore function to her leg, although it is unclear if she will be able to walk again.
