| by Michael Allen

An unidentified couple were recently caught on video (below) walking into the ocean inside their homemade shark cages in Outer Banks, North Carolina.

The video was posted on 94.5 WCMS Facebook page with the caption: "Here is the VIDEO of the 'Vacationers' with the 'shark proof cages' ... see we were NOT lying hahahaha we are still laughing! Thank you Jordan Cutrell for the video!"

Cutrell wrote on Facebook: "I took a video of the man and woman trying to promote and take photos of the man's 'shark proof' cage invention, even the lifeguard wants to know what they're doing."

The couple may have been trying to prevent an attack as there have been six shark attacks on the Carolina coast over the course of three weeks, 13 News Now reported on July 2.
