SnowBrains |

The U.S. Coast Guard says a shark approached crew members of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Kimball during a swim call in the Pacific Ocean.

About 40 crew members were swimming when the shark was spotted and a maritime enforcement specialist on board the cutter fired at it.

The Coast Guard says all of the crew members safely got out of the water and the shark, estimated to be six to eight feet (1.8-2.4 meters) long, appeared to be uninjured as it swam away.
