A young boy had the fright of his life when a flock of seagulls swoop down and chased him on a beach in New Jersey.
The chilling scene occurred when the youngster held some food up in the air and was inevitably reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock’s famous movie The Birds.
The terrifying footage was slowed down and shared on Twitter by the boy’s cousin Patricia.
A terrifying video captures the moment a flock of seagulls swoop down on a boy who held food up in the air.

And here are the highlights:
The boy and his cousin were on the beach at Sea Isle City in New Jersey, when their relaxing day out took a rather drastic turn.
Titled “Don’t feed seagulls kids”, the video shows the seven-year-old AJ raise his hand up in the air, holding food.
Almost immediately, one seagull swoops down, prompting the child to scream out loud and throw the piece of food to the ground.
Yet, despite the fact that he has lost the food, AJ is quickly swarmed by around 10 seagulls, causing him to run off in terror.
