Watch these beach goers save a stranded great white shark

Dozens of people at a Massachusetts beach rallied together to save the life of a young great white shark that washed ashore.

When Chatham harbormaster Stuart Smith arrived at South Beach early Monday afternoon, he found 30 to 40 people pouring buckets of water on the shark to help him breathe. "Twenty, 25 years ago, they wouldn't be exactly helping the shark," he told The Boston Globe. "They'd be harming the shark. But now every single person on that beach was trying to assist it. The people on the beach made the difference."
