CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Shark Found In Car Wash Drain
According to the three friends, they were walking when someone told them there was a shark at the car wash, so they went to check it out. They said they could smell the shark before they saw it.
"(We were) wondering how in the world a shark ended up at a car wash coming out of the sewer. Everything was flooded though, like the whole park was flooded," one person said.
