CHATHAM, Mass. (AP) - A great white shark that was saved by beachgoers on a Cape Cod beach has been spotted several times since its rescue.

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy tells WCVB-TV (https://bit.ly/1g8T1BG ) the shark, named Jameson, has been spotted in the waters off Chatham on five different days since the July 13 rescue.

Officials said the 7-foot male shark got stuck near South Beach as the tide went out.

Beachgoers kept the shark wet by splashing it with buckets of water until officials attached a line to its rear caudal fin and Harbormaster Stuart Smith pulled it back into open waters. Officials said it took about an hour.
