The 26-year-old man from Revere succumbed to his injuries following the attack off Newcomb Hollow Beach in Wellfleet at around noon, Wellfleet Police Lt. Michael Hurley said.
Police said the man suffered serious injuries and CPR was performed at the beach, but he was later pronounced dead at Cape Cod Hospital. The beach was quickly closed after the attack and witnesses said the deadly scene looked like something straight out of the movie, Jaws.

The man, described as being in his mid-twenties, was reportedly using a boogie board at the time of the attack.
He saw a man aggressively kick something behind him and a flicker of a tail from the water.
"For Cape Cod we are experiencing an increasingly active shark population, which is a relatively new phenomenon for our region, requiring us to learn best practices in order to keep humans educated and safe", the statement says. "This has turned into Amity Island real quick out here".
Police and paramedics responded to Newcomb Hollow Beach in Wellfleet on Saturday after the shark attack.
"We are witnessing sharks feeding aggressively in shockingly shallow water on an nearly daily basis over this past August", he wrote. The local district attorney's office and the Massachusetts State Police were investigating.

Hayley Williamson, a Cape Cod resident and former lifeguard who was on the beach at the time, was in disbelief after the man, who police have not yet identified was rushed in an ambulance.
This was the second shark attack on Cape Cod this summer. "Right spot, wrong time, I guess".
Beaty elaborated, "Perhaps now specific federal, state, and local officials tasked with responsibility for such matters, as well as the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy in Chatham, will take this issue much more seriously than they have in the recent past". He said those officials were responsible for "this frightful shark attack" due to lack of attention and inaction.
