For the first time in over 80 years, a Massachusetts man has died after a violent shark assault that occurred off the shores of Cape Cod. Here’s what we all know concerning the tragic occasion.
Well, that is extremely unhappy and equally terrifying. A 26-year-old boogie boarder had been having fun with the waves off of Cape Cod at Newcomb Hollow Beach with a pal when he was viciously attacked by a shark, in line with the Daily Mail. The man, who’s the first individual in Massachusetts to die from wounds he suffered from the shark bites since 1936, was knocked off his board at 12:30 pm after which attacked by the shark, in line with Cape Cod National Park Service. After the assault, the sufferer was administered CPR on the seaside as a number of folks tried to create a makeshift tourniquet to stifle the blood loss he sustained from his wounds. After the sufferer had been transported to Cape Code Hospital by the Wellfleet Fire Department, he died from his accidents.
An eyewitness, local fisherman Joe Booth, noticed the second the shark attacked. He described how the late sufferer kicked one thing behind him, before a story emerged from the water. “I was that guy on the beach screaming ‘Shark, shark!’ It was like right out of that movie Jaws. This has turned into Amity Island real quick out here,” he admitted to WBUR.
As of proper now, the identification of the sufferer is presently being withheld till his household has been notified. The State Police and the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s workplace are presently investigating the assault. We reported earlier how a boy and woman had been both attacked on Fire Island on the identical day again in July. Lola Pollina, 12, described being bitten by a “three to four-foot shark” whereas she was standing within the waters of the Sailors Haven seaside.
