Shark bites woman off Maui, hour after shark bumps into surfer

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) _ A woman was operated on at a Maui hospital yesterday after a shark bit her while she was snorkeling off Keawakapu Beach.

Kihei resident Amon Aquarian told the Maui News the woman had a deep gash on her right foot and another wound on her leg.

But he said she was surprisingly peaceful and calm. Others at the beach applied a tourniquet to stop her leg from bleeding.

The attack happened about one hour after a surfer reported that his friend's surfboard was bumped by what appeared to be a tiger shark at nearby Kamaole Beach Park.

That report prompted the county to close that beach and issue a shark alert.


The last shark attack in Hawaii occurred in November in the same area. Kyle Gruen, was bit by a shark he estimated to be six to 10 feet long while swimming 10 yards off Kamaole.
