Don't feed the birds!
This young boy had no idea he would receive such a response when he held a piece of food in the air on a day out.
Seven-year-old AJ was at the beach in Sea Isle City, New Jersey, with his cousin Tricia Mortlock when he held a piece of food in the air.
Unsurprisingly, a bird swooped down from behind and tried to grab it.
AJ dropped the food to the ground and ran from the seagull, but the terror didn't end there.
Several other hopeful birds were looking for more grub and proceeded to chase him down the beach.
“My cousin actually thought it was hilarious to be honest,” Tricia said.
While this experience would put most people off going to the beach for life, Tricia said AJ “still loves the beach and “isn’t afraid of birds.”
Tricia shared the video to Twitter, where it has received over 11,000 retweets and 13,000 likes.
