Heart-racing moment a plucky mammal escapes an onrushing orca by swimming into the Shetland shallows

July 27, 2016

Heart-racing video footage shows a seal’s close call with an onrushing orca hunting off the Shetland Islands.

The seal survives by swimming into the shallows seconds before the killer whale can catch up.

Island resident James Adamson, from Sumburgh, captured the close encounter while whale watching off the coast of Levenwick.

At the start of the video the seal appears oblivious to the master predator racing up behind it.

But quick as a flash it darts around and heads to safer waters.
