Hundreds of beach-goers banded together to try and save a great white shark on Sunday.
The 14-foot-adult male washed up onto Whitecrest Beach in Wellfleet, Massachusetts.
A huge crowd of people worked to move the shark, which weighed more than 900 kg, back into the ocean.
He did not survive, despite the incredible effort displayed among the rescuers.
Robyn Schnaible, who posted the video showing the heroic rescue effort, was visiting the area with her family when she came upon the people working together to save the shark.
Several beach-goers are seen pouring buckets of water over the shark’s head and body while the others dug a pool and a trench in the sand to drag it back into the ocean.
Schnaible wrote in the video description that the rescuers tied one end of the rope around its tail and the other end was attached to a boat.
“It was an impressive effort, but unfortunately the shark did not swim off once he was back in the water,” she wrote.
