"Mum, Dad & Bruce"

I got this from extended family today via e-mail. I have no idea if the story is really true, but the photo sure does make one think so. ;)

A family was on holiday in Australia for a week and a half when the husband, wife and their 15-year-old son decided to go scuba diving. The husband is in the Navy and has had some scuba experience.

His son wanted to take a pictuere of his mum and dad in all their gear with the underwater camera. As the son was taking the picture, the dad realized that the son looked like he was panicking and gave him the "OK" hand sign to see if he was all right.

The son took the picture and swam back to the boat as quick as he could, with mum and dad following to see if he was OK. When they got back to him he was scrambling onto the boat.

When the parents asked why, he said, "There was a shark behind you!" The dad thought he was joking, but the skipper of the boat said it was true and that they wouldn't believe him if he told them what it was. As soon as the family got back to the hotel they put the picture onto the laptop and this is what they saw:

Anonymous: Thanks for the info. I hadn't checked snopes (although I prolly should have). I'm not surprised that it's a hoax, but I appreciate your letting me know.
