INJURED — 28 August 2007 — Ka’a’awa, Oahu, Hawaii — bodysurfer attacked

A 15-year-old boy (name not released) was bitten on the foot while bodysurfing at Ka’a’awa, Oahu, Hawaii on Tuesday 28 August 2007.

The boy says it was a 12 foot Tiger shark that bit him.

According to a report in the Honolulu Advertiser the boy was 400 metres offshore when he felt something “slice” at his foot before seeing his foot in the mouth of a shark. The boy kicked the shark with his other foot and it swam away. He suffered only minor lacerations to his foot.

The boy was treated for injuries at a nearby fire station before his parents took him to Kaiser Moanalua Medical Center for further examination.
