Surfer recovering from shark attack

By Associated Press

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) A surfer who was attacked by a tiger shark in a bay on the Big Island is recovering.

A spokeswoman at Kaiser Permanente's Moanalua Medical Center in Honolulu says 43-year-old Paul Santos is alert and in stable condition with bites to his right arm and leg.

The attack by the shark estimated to be between 15 and 18 feet occurred Wednesday afternoon in about 8 feet of water at Kiholo Bay. Aaron Walters, who works as a chef, told the Hawaii Tribune-Herald that he was outside picking herbs when someone called for help, and he saw a man running down the beach in an effort to get help for his friend.

Walters says he helped the man use the surfboard leash to tie a tourniquet around Santos' right arm.
