If you’re going to the beach, go to the beach, Poleate says, and watch the ocean -- “the shark’s house” -- from a distance.
“Safety first,” says Poleate, who appears to be driving in the video.
According to her Facebook page, Poleate is a school counselor at the Hamilton County Department of Education.
North Carolina has had seven shark attacks since June 11.
