    RAW VIDEO: Aerial Footage of a White Shark Off Cape Cod

    NBC10 Boston's Sky Ranger was over a great white shark off Long Nook Beach in Cape Cod on Wednesday, showing how close the shark was to the beach. The footage was recorded less than two hours after a man was bitten by a shark in the same area. It has not been determined if this is the same shark that attacked the man.

    The Cape Cod beach where a man was bitten by a shark earlier this week remains closed to swimming until further notice due to "continued shark activity," according to police.

    Swimming has been prohibited at Long Nook Beach in Truro, Massachusetts, since 61-year-old William Lytton of Scarsdale, New York, was bitten by a shark 30 yards off shore.

    Lytton suffered deep puncture wounds. He was taken by medical helicopter to Tufts Medical Center, where he remained in critical condition Friday.

    Town officials announced Friday afternoon that Long Nook Beach would reopen to swimmers at 9 a.m. Saturday. Later in the evening, however, the Truro Police Department said on Facebook that swimming at the beach would remain barred indefinitely.
