The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports on a great white shark attack on Saturday, "Shark attacks kayak near Pleasure Point." And this morning's Los Angeles Times reports on the Cape Cod great white sighting from Saturday as well, "Cape Cod shark: 'I just paddled,' kayaker says."
[Walter] Szulc, of Manchester, N.H., didn't realize he was being followed until the nearby paddle-border, Dana Richardson, began waving and yelling, "Shark!" That's when Szulc looked over his shoulder. "I saw the fin right away and I figured this is either it, or I'm going to paddle in," Szulc told reporters later.More at LAT, "Cape Cod shark scare: More people, more sharks, more run-ins," and at CSM, "Great white sharks: Close encounters on East and West coasts (+video).
Richardson had spotted it earlier about a mile south and said it trailed him as well. He was headed for Nauset Beach to alert lifeguards.
The fish got there first.
"I didn't want to just yell, 'Shark, shark,' and scare people," said Richardson, a Cape Cod resident and longtime surfer and paddle-boarder. "But when I saw the fin following the kayaker, I began yelling and waving my paddle."
The sighting came on the same day that a great white drew attention in Santa Cruz after chomping off the end of a kayak. The kayaker was thrown into the water and stunned, but not injured.
Mr. Szulc is interview at CNN, "Brian Todd reports on the sightings of sharks in Cape Cod."
