Shark Attacks Hawaii Paddleboarder 100 Yards Offshore
A 25-year-old paddleboarder has been hospitalized after suffering multiple injuries in a shark attack off Hawaii’s Big Island on Saturday. The unidentified victim was reportedly stand up paddle boarding at Kukio Beach about 100-150 yards offshore when a shark swam up to his board and bit him. A private safety team at the beach “heard a scream from the ocean and they took a four man canoe out to find a male individual” with “injuries to his right side extremities,” Fire Capt. Michael Grace told KHON-TV. The man was airlifted to a hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.
