  • Shark Kills Seal Close To Shore, Surfers Narrowly Escape Attack

Two surfers from Brooklyn narrowly missed a shark attack in Cape Cod Monday.

No people were hurt during Monday afternoon's attack at Nauset Beach, which came as the beach was crowded with people, many there to watch the solar eclipse.

Pat O'Brien, whose Twitter account posted the video (taken by his nephew) told WBZ that those on the sand yelled to the surfers that there was a shark and to swim away. "I got out and saw blood coming out of the seal...there was blood everywhere".

By that time, the gentle waves were filling with blood as the shark kept stalking the seal and moving toward the two teen surfers visiting from New York City. Beachgoers caught the incident on camera, showing the gruesome scene where the water turned red after the shark bit the seal.

Officials closed the water to swimmers following the incident. "She had just gotten out and I was looking up at her, and she yelled something down to me, but I didn't hear what it was".

The Sharktivity App, developed by Massachusetts Marine Fisheries and the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, confirmed the sighting of the great white at Nauset beach, which is in Orleans. "Help me!' and I grabbed his right arm and another guy grabbed his left arm and we pulled him out", O'Brien said.

What you don't expect is to be forced out of the water when a shark gets super close to the shore.

"I felt like the shark's gonna pull me in from my legs or something", Schlinger continued. "I'll probably think twice about jumping in the water". Signs greeting those who step onto the beach as well as flags warn any fearless beachgoers that there was a recent shark sighting and to "use area at own risk".

Beaches are not closed on Tuesday, said a spokesperson from the Orleans Police Department.
