A San Antonio family visiting San Francisco appears to have captured the moment when a great white shark devoured its prey near Alcatraz, the former prison island, in a cell phone video.

“It’s Jaws!” a boy named Keaton screams with excitement in the clip, as he hums the theme from the hit horror film.

But it is rare that an attack in the area is caught on camera: “It’s a sign that the bay is getting healthier,” he told the news station. “When you have predations, that means the ecosystem is becoming more balanced.”
