The surfers at Nauset Beach were just a few feet away from the shore line when a savage shark ripped into a seal and a huge trail of blood appeared on the surface of the water.

Beachgoers who tried to enjoy Cape Cod's Nauset beach on Monday got more than a summer day on the sand and views of the eclipse. The shark took a fatal bite out of the seal just off Nauset Beach in Orleans.

Video showed an expanding pool of blood in the water around a seal.

"I was just, like, pulling my board, and people were yelling, 'Get out the water, get out the water!'" one of the surfers, Nisi Schlanger, told NBC New York. "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". "My first thought was that a shark attacked a seal".

The beaches all closed at different times, but the shark was spotted off the coast of Ballston Beach at 11:27 a.m., Clements said.

When the surfers started calling for help, Pat and another beachgoer got back in the water and pulled the boys to safety.

The beach was closed to swimmers after the attack, according to an Orleans Police Department dispatcher. "Get out the water!' I thought I was dead".

What you don't expect is to be forced out of the water when a shark gets super close to the shore. "Help me!' and I grabbed his right arm and another guy grabbed his left arm and we pulled him out", O'Brien told WBZ. In 2012, a Colorado man swimming off that beach was bit by a shark.

The Massachusetts Marine Fisheries said numbers have been climbing in recent years, with a regional population of 147 in 2016 - more than double the number, 68, in 2014.

"I looked up and saw the dorsal fin and the tail of what was a great white shark", witness Thayer Wade told CBS in Boston.
