This Shark Was Stranded On The Beach. Instead Of Running, These People Saved His Life!Ashley Maisano
A seven-foot-long juvenile Great White shark beached himself while trying to catch seagulls on a Cape Cod beach near Chatham, Massachusetts. Instead of running away, people on the beach took buckets of water and dumped it on the shark to prevent him from suffocating until help arrived.
The harbor master tied a rope, that was attached to a boat, around his tail and pulled him back into the water. He wasn’t moving on his own, so they stuck by him and didn’t give up. They tied him alongside the boat, slowly moving forward to get the water moving through his gills again. Thankfully, they were able to resuscitate him and he finally started swimming on his own again! They tagged him and researchers with the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy have detected the shark multiple times since his rescue, and he is doing great!
