Shark week may be over, but the giant beast is still making headlines.
After a 7-foot great white shark became stranded on a beach in Chatham, Massachusetts on Monday, a crowd of beach-goers ran to assist the animal in distress, reports Connecticut-based WFSB.
The shark, a juvenile male, was attempting to catch seagulls on the sandbar and became stranded when the tide went out, according to WSFB. Beach-goers responded to the incident by keeping the shark wet while waiting for rescuers to arrive. It also appears that a witness recorded the rescue.
"There was no way for the shark to get to where it could swim, so it just kept flapping and moving over," witness Kelly Skanell told WCVB in Boston.
There were nearly 40 people crowded around the shark and was initially believed to be dead, WFSB reports citing the Associated Press. The shark was reportedly tagged and released back into the water.
No word on whether George Costanza was present at the scene.
