INJURED – 7 May 2007 — Keawakapu Beach, Kihei, Maui, Hawaii – snorkeller attacked

A 63-year-old woman (name not released) was bitten on right her foot and calf while snorkelling about 30 metres offshore of Keawakapu Beach, Kihei, Maui, Hawaii.

The incident occurred about 8.30am on Monday, 7 May 2007. The size and type of shark was not immediately known, although an hour earlier, a surfer at Kamaole Beach Park II, about a three kilometres away, reported that a possible tiger shark bumped his friend’s surfboard, according to the Honolulu Advertiser.

“Her right foot was slashed open – her complete foot on top from one end to the other longways,” Amon Aquarian, who was at the scene of the attack, told media.

The woman was taken by ambulance to Maui Memorial Medical Center.
