(NECN) - Massachusetts marine officials are done with their investigation on Cape Cod  and confirm a great white shark is to blame for biting a man.

Chris Myers was swimming with his son in Truro on July 30 when he suffered injuries to both of his legs.

He was released from the hospital last week but not before the state took a look at his injuries and spoke with Myers.
State officials stress that beachgoers should be aware of their surroundings and should avoid swimming at dawn or dusk, stay close to shore and avoid areas where seals are gathered.
