Iso Machado, a mom from Miami, went to the Bahamas to celebrate her birthday. She left with a viral video seen by millions.

While on a boat with her friends and family, Iso was cheered on as she slid down an inflatable slide, right off the boat and into the beautiful blue water.

Suddenly, a crew member standing on the deck noticed a dark mass swimming right up toward the unknowing birthday girl.

That’s when Iso’s son Anthony started shouting for his mom’s attention, warning her about the creature in the water.

“Oh my god, oh my god, Mom! Don’t freak out, don’t freak out!”

Iso found herself face-to-face with an 8-foot-shark, as the passengers on board the boat panicked.

Experts are now praising Iso for her calm response to the frightening yet unforgettable encounter.
