UPDATE: NBC has reported the shark has died.

Instead of running away out of fear, some beachgoers did an amazing thing for one lonely shark.

Over the Labour Day long weekend, beachgoers in Cape Cod, MA came face-to-face with a 14-foot great white shark. The shark, which had gotten stranded on the beach, was unable to get itself back in the water.

However, with quick thinking, several pails and a long rope, watch these brave Samaritans gather together to rescue this shark.

And with so many great animal rescue stories happening on shore lines, this story reminded us of a similar beach story in Tel Aviv, when a group of people got together to save a stranded turtle.
