As the drone soared over the beautiful waters of the Bahamas, it sent stunning footage directly back to its pilot, Artem Tkachenko. But then Tkachenko noticed four dark shapes swimming towards a child in the ocean. He suddenly thought the school of sharks were hunting for dinner – and that they had the boy in their sights.
To many, the Bahamas is an ideal foreign vacation location. It has sun, sand and sea in abundance, after all. And although the country is part of the Americas, it’s technically a sovereign state under the British monarchy. It’s also not just one landmass – hence its plural name.
The Bahamas is actually an archipelago of over 700 islands amid the world’s clearest seas. So when you factor in the country’s tropical weather, it’s little wonder that so many tourists hold it in such high regard. But some people are drawn to the Bahamas for other reasons entirely.
