The man, who has not been named, was rushed to Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis, where he was later pronounced dead, though the extent of his injuries are not known.

The beach has been closed to swimming.

"I don't know what the town is really supposed to do", Bessler said.

Joe Booth, a surfer, told the Associated Press. Soon after, the friend dragged him ashore, where good samaritans on the beach applied a tourniquet and called 911.

A 26-year-old man has died in the first fatal shark attack in Cape Cod for more than 80 years, according to the Daily Mail. Joseph Troy Jr., a 16-year-old, was killed by a great white in Mattapoisett on Buzzards Bay in 1936. CPR was performed on Medici after he was pulled from the water and beach-goers teamed up to carry him down the beach.

RT's editor-in-chief said the two men reached out to her as they wanted to tell their story because they are now living in fear for their lives.

It was the first fatal shark attack in MA since 1936. Access to the beach facing the sea was closed.

Several years ago a man was confirmed to have been bitten by a great white shark in the ocean near the shoreline of Truro in Cape Cod.

The seal population in the area has grown, and with them come sharks in aggressive pursuit, said Gavin Naylor, the director of the Florida Program for Shark Research. The Cape Cod District Attorney's office and the Massachusetts State Police are both investigating, Hurley said.

According to off-duty lifeguard Adriana Picariello, the man had injuries to his lower extremities and no pulse while he was being tended to on the beach. He's now recovering in a Boston hospital. The type of shark involved was not immediately known.

Barnstable county commissioner Ron Beaty said he had warned something like this could happen.

According to Booth, the victim kicked at the shark when the attack happened.
