The Massachusetts man who was killed in a shark attack at Cape Cod has been identified and described by friends as being ‘sweet’ and ‘humble’.

Arthur Medici, 26, was attacked as he was boogie boarding with his girlfriend’s brother on Saturday afternoon at Newcomb Hollow Beach in Wellfleet, cops say.

The Cape Cod National Park Service reported that at 12.30pm the Revere man was knocked off his board then attacked by the shark. Police identified him Saturday evening.

Medici was born in Brazil and came to the United States two years ago to attend college, according to WCVB. He was described by friends as being sweet and humble.

The Saturday incident is the state’s first shark attack fatality in more than 80 years.

Following the attack Medici was brought to the shore by his friend where CPR was performed on him and beach goers tried to make a tourniquet to stop the blood flow, according to CBS.

He was taken to a Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis where he died, State Police spokesman David Procopio said in a statement. The details of his injuries have not been revealed.

The beach was closed after the vicious attack and police released his identity Saturday evening.
