Man dies after shark attack off Cape Cod
Police say a man has died after being attacked by a shark off a beach on Cape Cod in Massachusetts.
The 26-year-old man from Revere succumbed to his injuries following the attack in the waters off Newcomb Hollow Beach in Wellfleet.
Life-saving measures were attempted on the beach before the man was taken to Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis, where he was pronounced dead.
Witnesses say he was boogie boarding when he was attacked.
There have been frequent shark sightings this summer along the outer Cape, often leading to beach closings.
It's the state's first shark attack fatality in more than 80 years.
