The video has already received over 1million views on YouTube, it was first shown on Animal Planet channel.
The tourists claim a real mermaid was caught on camera in Kiryat Yam, Israel and since then, locals and tourists in the Israeli town have been flocking to the coast in hopes of glimpsing a creature that most people believe only exist in fairy tales.
The YouTube channel explains what the video is about:
An alleged mermaid, said to resemble a cross between a fish and a young girl, only appears at sunset. It performs a few tricks for onlookers before disappearing for the night.
One of the first people to see the mermaid, Shlomo Cohen, said, “I was with friends when suddenly we saw a woman laying on the sand in a weird way. At first I thought she was just another sunbather, but when we approached she jumped into the water and disappeared. We were all in shock because we saw she had a tail.”
The sightings apparently began several months ago.
