NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WPDE) – A 5-year-old boy found a Megalodon tooth near his family's condo in Cherry Grove.

John and Amanda Griffin of Asheboro, N.C. said they and their son, Brantley, were looking at jellyfish on the beach when he made the find.

They say he mistook it for a shell and almost tossed it before they realized what he was holding.
