Man dies after shark attack

A 26-year-old man from Revere died after he was attacked by a shark off a Cape Cod beach Saturday afternoon, authorities said.

The incident marks the first fatal shark attack in MA since 1936.

Reynolds said Seashore rangers and Wellfleet police performed CPR on the victim on the beach after the bite. This has turned into Amity Island real quick out here, ' Booth said WBUR.

Two people look out at the water after a shark attack at Newcomb Hollow Beach in Wellfleet, Mass., on September 15.

"Today is just keeping everyone out of water", Hurley said. "Right spot, wrong time, I guess". Beach goers also tried to stop his bleeding by making a tourniquet on site, but sadly, Medici later passed away at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis after succumbing to the serious injuries.

There have been frequent shark sightings this summer along the outer Cape, often leading to beach closings. Many locals say it's the norm to swim fearlessly in the water because shark attacks are so rare.

Gavin Naylor, the director of the program, told CNN that such attacks are "very rare" and that "shark attacks in the summer are a direct outcome of more people and more animals in the water".
