Someone can be heard saying “bye-bye” in a viral video, which may show the last moments of Cameron Robbins. The video then cuts off.
Robbins, 18 years old, was on a Blackbeard’s Revenge Sunset Cruise in the Bahamas after graduating Baton Rouge University Laboratory School U-High May 21.
He reportedly jumped into the “shark infested” water near the uninhabited Athol Island to the northeast of Nassau on May 24. A video of Robbins swimming has been viewed over 10,000,000 times.
The profanity-laced clip ends with Robbins swimming away from a safety vest, while someone shouts “Oh my f —— God! Oh, shut up! Oh, bye, bye.”
As their rapid and high-pitched screams increase in volume, panic seems to grip other onlookers.
Social media was flooded with speculations that Robbins had encountered a Shark. Many people believe the shark bit Robbins the moment he heard “Oh, Bye, Bye” on the video.
The video was edited in a variety of ways, from changing the exposure and lighting to slowing the speed. However, the footage taken on the phone is too dark to show clearly what happened.
Brian Trascher told Fox News Digital that the United Cajun Navy consults with professors from the Louisiana State University Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences to gain expertise.

Two days after the man went overboard, the search was ended on Friday night.
His family didn’t say anything except for a press release: “The Bahamas Government has cancelled the rescue of Cameron and we will be returning to Baton Rouge.”
We want to thank all of the people who have helped us, including the Bahamas government, U.S. Coast Guard and Congressman GarretGraves. We thank our family and friends for giving us the privacy that we needed to mourn our son’s death and remember him properly.
A memorial service is being planned for Sunday. The community came together to search for the missing person on Thursday.
Robbins, a baseball star in Baton Rouge, was an outstanding player. His last pictures were of his graduation with family and friends.
Justin Morgan, U-High Baseball coach, said that Cameron is loved by all his teammates and classmates. “He is fiercely competitive on the baseball pitch. He works hard on the field and off.
Our school community is going through a difficult time right now. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Robbins Family during this difficult period.
According to a GoFundMe page created for the Robbins’ family, his mom is “an indescribably incredible teacher. Her kindness and dedication have helped countless kids throughout her career.”
Kevin George, director of Lab School told the local news outlet WBRZ, that Robbins was a “special child.”
“He’s been here for his entire education career.” He is a great athlete, he has a great smile and he has incredibly long hair. George said, “This is one of those kids that you are so proud of as they cross the stage.”
The funeral service for Robbins is scheduled to take place at Broadmoor United Methodist Church, Baton Rouge on Sunday, June 4.
The visitation hours are from 2 to 4 pm. The service begins at 4 p.m.
In lieu of Robbins’ services, a contribution in his name can be made to Christian Homes & Family Services, located in Abilene.
