On Saturday September 15, 2018 bodyboarder Arthur Medici, 26, of Revere, Massachusetts, was attacked by a shark at Newcomb Hollow Beach at Cape Cod, according to the National Park Service. He was pulled out of the water and taken to Cape Cod Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to a story in the New York Times.

Medici was attacked around noon as he and a friend were boogie boarding. The friend dragged him ashore, and people on the beach attempted life-saving measures including CPR and applying tourniquets. He was taken to Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis, where he was pronounced dead.

This is the first shark attack death in the area since 1936, however, it is the second attack in over a month, according to the story. The beach remains closed.
