Off-duty Florida Police officer rescues a boy from shark attack
On Thursday evening, Adrian Kosicki, a Cocoa Beach Police officer from Florida, was strolling on the beach with his wife when he noticed a shark moving towards a small boy on a boogie board. Without wasting any time, Adrian jumped into the water and pulled the boy from the surf as the shark began to get dangerously close.
“We’re certainly not marine biologists, educated and trained to differentiate between the various species of sharks, their respective feeding habits, and aggressiveness near swimmers. We just do what we do best — protect the public from harm,” Cocoa Beach Police & Fire wrote in a Facebook post.
“Thanks to Adrian, we’ll never know what that shark’s intentions were, and that little boy will forever have a pretty cool story to tell.”
