Message circulated via social media websites, blogs and email claiming that an attached image is a huge shark swimming down a flooded street in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Irene in August 2011.

Sample Message:

Wow is all I have to say…. Shark in the Streets of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Irene

This picture was taken in Puerto Rico shortly after Hurricane Irene ravaged the island. Yes, that’s a shark swimming down the street next to a car, and this is exactly why authorities in NYC are warning not to go swimming in flood waters after a hurricane.

 

Analysis:

The image of shark swimming in street that is being circulated is a fake one created out of digital manipulation, just for the sake of prank. It is actually the famous picture of a shark following a kayaker, that is incorporated into the “flooded street” photograph. You can see the image below, both are one and the same.
