Jaws ter­ror in Cape Cod

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - World -

CAPE COD: A man has died af­ter be­ing bit­ten by a shark in the wa­ter off a Cape Cod beach, be­com­ing Mas­sachusetts’ first fa­tal at­tack in more than 80 years.

The 26-year-old man died of his in­juries af­ter the at­tack off New­comb Hol­low Beach.

Lo­cal fish­er­man Joe Booth said he saw the man ag­gres­sively kick some­thing be­hind him and a flicker of a tail from the wa­ter.

“I was that guy on the beach scream­ing, ‘Shark, shark!’” Booth said. “It was like right out of that movie Jaws.”

The beach has been closed to swim­ming.
