What a proper send off for Shark Week when ordinary people enjoying a day on the beach in Cape Cod came to the rescue of a feared man eating Great White shark.

This poor young shark got himself beached while trying to chase after a seagull that made it up on to the shore. Initially some of the people stood around in a daze to see this type of shark up close and helpless was a lot to grasp. But thankfully someone realized that he needed water and grabbed a bucket to help him as best they could.

Thankfully as well someone had the insight to know they needed to involve some professionals to try and get him back in the water after he has suffered such a traumatic situation.

The shark was tagged and eased back into the water before they totally let him go to make sure he could swim. It is so good to see the kindness in humans, even when faced with something they are afraid of.
