Arthur Medici, 26, died after a shark attack Saturday. He was boogie boarding with a friend at Newcomb Hollow Beach in Wellfleet around 12pm when he was fatally attacked. Witnesses say he tried to kick the shark away then was viciously attacked. Witness Joe Booth said 'it was like right out of that movie Jaws'. The victim was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Medici was born in Brazil but moved to the US to go to college, two years ago.

So... they're saying that global warming is the problem... because the ocean is warming, the fish are moving closer to ther shore... where it's even warmer in the shallow water??

As another beach season draws to a close on Cape Cod, researchers are trying to figure out what's driving the increase in shark sightings and encounters. One prominent researcher suggests the presence of younger and smaller great white sharks this summer could be playing a role. They add that the fish sharks hunt - including bluefish, menhaden, dogfish and skates - are moving closer to the shore. Officials say they're concerned about swimmers and have had to close beaches more frequently this year because of shark sightings In August, William Lytton, 61, of New York, escaped a shark attack off Truro, Massachusetts, with severe injuries to his leg and arm.
