Man dies after shark attack in Cape Cod

Shark attack kills man at Cape Cod beach, the first such fatality in Massachusetts in 82 years

Wellfleet Police Lt Michael Hurley confirmed the victim, a man in his mid-20s, died of his injuries following the attack, the first fatal shark incident in MA since 1936.

The victim in his mid-20s died in hospital from his injuries, said Wellfleet police officer Michael Hurley.

The man, described as being in his mid-twenties, was reportedly using a boogie board at the time of the attack. He realized what was happening when the friend came ashore dragging his injured friend.

The National Park Service, which is responsible for that part of the Cape Cod National Seashore, tweeted that the attack took place about 300 yards south of the beach.

A NY man was seriously injured when he was bitten in Truro. He's still recovering from his puncture wounds in a Boston hospital.

A 61-year-old man from NY was seriously injured last month, just five miles away, after punching a shark in the gills off Long Nook Beach near the town of Truro.

"I was that guy on the beach screaming, 'Shark, shark!' " Booth said. The beach was quickly closed after the attack and witnesses said the deadly scene looked like something straight out of the movie, Jaws. "This has turned into Amity Island real quick out here".

Booth said it was a quiet day at the beach, and he saw some people boogie-boarding before he noticed some commotion in the water.

According to off-duty lifeguard Adriana Picariello, the man had injuries to his lower extremities and no pulse while he was being tended to on the beach.

News Release from County Commissioner Ronald Beaty, published verbatim.

Beachgoers said the Wellfleet beach is popular with surfers, and with sunny skies and warm temperatures Saturday it was busy, even though the summer season was over and lifeguards were no longer on watch. "Right spot, wrong time, I guess". Great White Sharks are predators and should be considered risky. It's also the first fatal attack in the United States since April 2015.
