Shark washes up on Long Island shore
A commercial fisherman saw a shark struggling along the shoreline of a Long Island beach.
This happened at Point Lookout just north of the Loop Parkway Bridge.
The fisherman pulled over to help and called the state Department of Environmental Conservation and the Town of Hempstead Bay constable.
By the time they arrived, the shark was able to swim away.
It is believed to be a Mako Shark, around 10 feet with no pectoral fin.
