Man dies after apparent shark bite on Cape Cod

Man dies after apparent shark bite on Cape Cod

Officials said the town's beaches will remain closed to swimmers for at least 24 hours.

Mr Medici, who is the first man to be killed in the state in more than 80 years, came to America for college two years ago. "Fifteen feet wide. I saw a tail and a lot of thrashing", Booth said.

Then the victim's friend dragged him to shore.

An eyewitness, local fisherman Joe Booth, saw the moment the shark attacked.

"It was like right out of that movie Jaws. This has turned into Amity Island real quick out here".

The victim was rushed to Cape Cod Hospital by ambulance but did not survive.

Police said the man suffered serious injuries and CPR was performed at the beach, but he was later pronounced dead at Cape Cod Hospital.




It was the first fatal shark attack in MA since 1936, and the second shark attack this season.

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.

This is the second shark attack this summer off Cape Cod. Great white sharks, apex predators, inhabit the waters off the Cape.

A swimmer has died from an apparent shark bite off the coast of MA in the northeastern United States, a police report on the rare incident said.

Hayley Williamson, a Cape Cod resident and former lifeguard who was on the beach at the time, was left in disbelief. He's now recovering in a Boston hospital.

Before the August bite in Truro, the most recent shark bite on the Cape occurred in 2017, according to the Global Shark Attack File, when a great white nibbled Cleveland Bigelow's boogie board in the waters off of Marconi Beach in Wellfleet. "Right spot, wrong time, I guess". He freed himself by punching the shark in the gills, he told the Boston Globe.

Barnstable county commissioner Ron Beaty said he had warned something like this could happen.
