On May 11, a sheriff's department helicopter crew warned some paddle-boarders in Southern California (near Capistrano Beach) that they were "next to approximately 15 great white sharks".

CNN reports the final number was closer to 25 Great Whites that appeared en masse up and down the Orange County coast.

People were asked to leave the water.

About 15 Great White sharks were spotted in the waters off Capistrano Beach in southern Orange County Wednesday.

"They (the State Parks department) are advising you exit the water in a calm manner".

On April 29, a shark attacked 35-year-old Leeanne Ericson of Vista as she swam at the beach, tearing off much of her right buttock and thigh.
