Swimmers were cleared from the water off Manhattan Beach on Tuesday evening after a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department helicopter spotted a shark, officials said. The copter circled over an area near the north end of the beach close to El Porto Beach, officials said. Personnel in the aircraft used a public address system to warn people. County lifeguards, however, downplayed the sighting. A lifeguard boat responded to the area and reported seeing a juvenile shark about 4 feet long.
