    A great white shark attacked two kayakers off the coast of Manomet Point, near Plymouth, Massachusetts, on Wednesday evening.

    One of the kayakers said the shark came up from underneath her best friend's boat, grabbed the boat and flipped them both over. A bystander on shore called for help after the two women were submerged and screaming for help.

    On Friday, the 911 tape was released of the call made after the attack. Listen here:

    No injuries were reported in the attack, according to Brewster Ambulance Service in a Facebook post. However, the kayak had a massive bite mark in it.


    Kayakers and beachgoers were out in large numbers on Wednesday, enjoying the above-normal warmth gripping the area.
