Next, Jenelle revealed that her mom Barbara told her that she and Jenelle's five-year-old son, Jace, were on the very same beach that very same day and left only 15 minutes before the attacks occurred. So scary!

Jenelle, who recently split from her fiance Nathan Griffith, currently lives with their son, Kaiser, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, while Jace lives with Barbara about an hour away. The mom of two often posts photos of herself and her boys swimming at the nearby beaches, so it's crazy how close to home this news story hits for the MTV star.

Jenelle also took this opportunity to share a bikini selfie. The last one she posted was from her tropical vacation in January when she and Nathan got engaged, so clearly she was due for a new one.

Did you know that the beach where the accident occurred was so close to Jenelle's home? Tweet us @OKMagazine.
