Video: Great white shark beach rescue

THIS video features footage of a great white shark that was recently stranded on a Cape Cod beach in the US – the shark was saved by beachgoers who kept it wet until rescuers arrived.

Witnesses say the 2.1m male shark became stranded on the beach in Chatham, Massachusetts, as the tide went out.

It had reportedly been chasing after a seagull and leapt from the water to catch the bird, beaching itself in the process.

Beachgoers kept the shark wet by splashing it with buckets of water until officials attached a line to its rear caudal fin and Harbormaster Stuart Smith pulled it back into open waters.

Officials say it took about an hour to return the shark to the water.
