Safe to swim again

At 6 a.m. Sunday, the 5-foot shark washed ashore at Beach 113th Street in Rockaway. The parks department said it presumed the shark to be the same thresher that beached itself at Beach 109th Street on Saturday morning.

wonder what made it wash up ashore the first time. Was it too weak to fight the incoming currents or did it swim to the beach of its own accord for some reason?
