Baby Great White shark given second chance at life

Here's a little something to curb your 'Shark Week' withdraws. A baby Great White shark that washed up on a Cape Cod beach Monday in now free to roam about the ocean again thanks to the quick thinking of several conservation groups. 

According to witnesses, the small, SEVEN-FOOT-LONG fish had been swimming in a shallow sandbar area of Chatham when he jumped out of the water to get a bird and inadvertently beached himself. Bystanders quickly jumped to the rescue and splashed water on the great white shark until authorities arrived. The harbormaster then tied a rope around the shark and towed it back out to sea. 

At one point in the tow video you can even see him petting the snout of the baby shark before it is released and swims away - presumably happy and grateful to be alive.
