What you're looking at right there is a great white shark in the waters off the Massachusetts coast. The shark was spotted by a state police helicopter about 75 yards off shore at Duxbury beach on Monday. Beach goers were ordered out of the water as the helicopter continued to monitor the shark to make sure it traveled away from the shore. SOUNDBITE: JACK MCWILLIAMS, BEACH GOER, SAYING: "We never saw a dorsel fin or anything, it's not like in the movies but we saw the helicopter going out for awhile and then start to come back getting closer to shore." The beach was closed for about two hours before people were allowed back in the water.
