Photos and now videos have been making the rounds on social media of a pair of beachgoers in Kill Devil Hills using personal shark cages in the surf Sunday.

The couple from Richmond, Va., made it into the water as far as the breakers before a lifeguard whistled them out.

WRIC, an ABC affiliate in Richmond, interviewed Sandi and Scott Bergman, who said the cages were props made out of plastic piping. They made them intending to film a spoof, according to the television station.

On his Facebook page Scott Bergman posted a photo of the couple waving from the shark cages. Photoshopped in bright lettering was “Greetings from the Outer Banks North Carolina.”

At least eight shark attacks were reported earlier this summer, all of them south of the more populated beach towns above Oregon Inlet.
