Wailuku, Maui (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 58-year-old man visiting from Marina Del Rey, California was bitten by a shark Tuesday morning, in waters fronting 110 Ka'anapali Shores Place, officials say.
The incident was reported at around 8:30 a.m. Surfers were evacuated from the water and the beach is closed for a mile in both directions from the area where the shark bite took place.
Maui officials say the victim suffered two deep lacerations on the right thigh, above the knee.

Surfers were evacuated from the water and the beach is closed for a mile in both directions
No shark would dare to swim outside that One mile in each direction.
Are you kidding me?
I think you forgot the /sarc tag?
Although I used to live on Oahu, I’ve never been to the state of Hawaii...
Think about it.
I hoped to get your feedback from living there. If not, oh well.
You have to threaten to report him to the mods first if you must have elaboration.
I barely remember it.
That’s only for that one ping list.

My thoughts exactly.
Don’t sharks like seals and go after dark silhouettes of them and people in dark wet suits?
Here fishy, fishy, fishy....
My brother lives there and has invited me to visit many times. I have declined, because I refuse to submit to the TSA probing, and also have a health condition that precludes flying.
When they build a road to Honolulu, I will drive there.
