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. ... 4q_eg.cspx
