Swimmers were already out of the water when the shark was spotted 50 yards off Cape Cod.

A beach on Cape Cod in Massachusetts was closed to swimmers over the weekend after two great white sharks were spotted near the shore.

Massachusetts State Police said on Facebook that an air wing crew spotted the two sharks on Saturday about 50 yards offshore at Newcomb Hollow Beach in Wellfleet.

“The flight crew advised local police of the location of the two sharks,” police said.
