Maui man hospitalized after apparent shark attack
Last Update: 12/12 6:24 pm
A Maui man was taken to the hospital Saturday afternoon after he was bitten by what officials believe was a shark.
It happened around 2 p.m. near an area known as Tavares Bay on Maui's north shore.
Police say the 46-year old man was swimming in murky waters about a hundred yards from shore when he felt a tug.
He managed to make it to shore and was taken to Maui Memorial Hospital with a gash on his foot, not a life-threatening injury.
Officials have posted warning signs from Tavares to Paia Bay.
