The shark alarm at Bondi Beach has again sent swimmers scrambling out of the water after the third shark sighting at the beach in two days.

The shark was spotted from the shore just before 4.40pm on Friday and lifeguards raised the alarm. Everyone out! Shark alarm at Bondi now pic.twitter南京夜网/UDBlZar0FP— Joe O’Brien (@joeobrien24) August 14, 2015

Lifeguards were trying to find a helicopter to patrol the waters for the shark just after 4.30pm.

“For safety’s sake, I need to start calling around and find a helicopter,” said lifeguard Matt when Fairfax Media called Bondi Surf Lifesavers.

A helicopter was hovering over Bondi by 5pm.

Some surfers returned to the water around the same time. Bondi lifeguards usually pack up at 5pm during winter.

The sighting comes roughly 24 hours after a shark was spotted at South Bondi on Thursday. #Breaking repeated shark alarms at Bondi pic.twitter南京夜网/azqoOKAlql— Phil Rich (@FelipeRico) August 14, 2015

A shark was first spotted near Icebergs at 3.30pm on Thursday by lifeguards, who triggered the alarm.

The shark alarm went off again at 5pm as the lifeguards were packing up.
