Transcript for 911 Call Released in Great White Shark Attack
terrifying shark attack off the coast of Massachusetts. Two women with a close encounter with a great white while out kayaking and this morning we're hearing their frantic call for help and ABC's Reena ninan has that for us. I was just on the phone. We're stuck in the water and there's a shark. Reporter: This morning the frantic call for two kayakers who came foist to face with the jaws of death. Ma'am, where is the shark? I don't know. He bumped me out of my boat. Was it a seal. No, no, there's something in the water. Okay. It was a great white. Reporter: Ida parker and Kristin record snapping pristine photos off plymouth beach when they say a shark attacked. Experts say the bite marks in their kayak suggest it was a R. Christopher white. Hey, what if he comes back? How long will he take? I see a shark biting my kayak. We sat in the water for about 30 minutes. It was the scariest 30 minutes of my life. Reporter: It shut down plymouth public beaches Thursday and officials in an all-out manhunt searching by air and sea. It was like right next to me. Yeah. It was petrifying. Reporter: Orr says her gopro camera captured the entire thing and terrifying detail. But that camera now somewhere in the deep either knocked off during the wild encounter or eaten. Are you back in your kayak or are you in the water? It's sinking and my friend's leaning on to her. Reporter: Massachusetts has seen an uptick in shark sightings. They're known to hunt seals in the area and usualliant aggressive to people. Ida and Kristin not thrilled about being the exception. I don't think I'll ever kayak again. And as Reena just said, it's unusual for them to attack. Right. There has to be some reason usually. Yes, starving, in a different place, disoriented or they thought it was a seal. I mean, they're so low to the ocean. You feel like you're in the water. Which is why they're never doing it again. I don't blame them at all.
