A hammerhead shark was spotted close to the shore in Ocean City for a second straight day on Thursday.
"Hammerheads normally wouldn't bother people," said Sonja Fordham of Shark Advocates International. "It would be extremely rare, but you shouldn't go up and investigate it more closely."
"I've been here 43 years and we've never had a shark incident," said Capt. Butch Arbin of the Ocean City Beach Patrol. "Even people who saw the shark go by are back in the water enjoying themselves."
