Revere man dies after shark attack off Cape Cod

A man who was swimming off the coast of MA has died after he was attacked by a shark, local officials say, making it the state's first fatal shark attack in more than 80 years.

He was spending time boogie boarding at the Newcomb Hollow Beach in Wellfleet with his girlfriend's brother when the shocking attack happened.

The man was given first aid and CPR, but died from his injuries at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis. His name was released by Cape and Islands Assistant District Attorney Tara Miltimore.

"I was that guy on the beach screaming, 'Shark, shark", he said.

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

The attack comes just weeks after a man from NY was severely injured in a shark attack on August 15 at Long Nook Beach in Truro. The incident occurred in Truro within the boundary of Cape Cod National Seashore.

The two legislators thanked the Wellfleet Fire and Police departments, the town's beach staff and bystanders "whose preparation and quick action provided help as soon as possible". The man's friend had to drag him to shore.

"I saw a worst nightmare unfold here", Booth said.

"The inshore waters off Wellfleet are a feeding ground for Great White Sharks", the sign reads.

Hayley Williamson, a Cape Cod resident and former lifeguard who was on the beach at the time, was left in disbelief. Many locals say it's the norm to swim fearlessly in the water because shark attacks are so rare.

The attack occurred on Saturday near Newcomb Hollow Beach on Cape Cod.
