Shark found in Australian pool

SYDNEY (AFP) A shark was found in a swimming pool at one of Sydney's most popular beaches Friday, apparently swept into the baths by a FREAK WAVE. The one-metre (3.3 foot) shark turned up in a rock pool situated next to the open ocean at Cronulla beach. "It was quite calm, just swimming happily up and down at one end of the pool. It's funny, though, because we have swimmers who come here at 6am every morning to do laps. It's still dark then and they mustn't have even noticed it was there." The shark must have been swept into the pool overnight by a large wave. "It's the first time we've had a shark in the pool. We've had seals sunbaking there before, and get dolphin at the beach all the time, but I've never heard of a shark getting caught in a pool before."
