The shark allegedly “pulled out a seal in the middle of the 20 surfers”, only 30 meters from the coast, Martin described on Twitter, adding in a separate tweet, the shark disappeared shortly after the event.

Martin said: “chaos”, there followed a few minutes after the attack until everyone on the beach was good for.

“My daughter had a seal swimming on her about 10 days ago exact sandbank and had no idea, until people at the beach began to shout for her to move. To ensure that the seals and all should be ok,” Martin advised a Twitter user.

GREAT WHITE SHARK CAUGHT IN RHODE ISLAND WATERS

Others who regularly take to the beach agreed.

Rule #1: do not swim or surf in the vicinity of the seals by the inlet at Nauset,” a Twitter user commented.

“We have holidays and Nauset 15-20 years (before and after the Children lol) and each year seems to seals inching closer to the shore, so the sharks closer,” another added.

“Right … stay clear of the seals,” Martin repeated.

The attack comes shortly after a great white was caught in Rhode Island waters on Sunday.
