HONOLULU shark attack Hawaii shark attack Charley Young Beach in Kihei shark attack

HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A swimmer who was injured late Monday morning in waters off Charley Young Beach in Kihei was probably not bitten by a shark, state wildlife officials said.

Despite earlier reports from the Maui County Fire Department indicating that the woman had been involved in a shark attack ― the 61-year-old female victim suffered multiple puncture wounds and lacerations to her left shoulder ― authorities said later in the day that they weren’t sure what caused the injuries.

“(The victim) was taken to the hospital, where an evaluation of her wound, by experts from the DLNR Division of Aquatic Resources, determined it was most likely not caused by a shark,” the state Department of Land and Natural Resources said in a statement. “What caused her injury is unknown.”

Firefighters say the woman was already on-shore when they arrived at the scene, having managed to make it to shore under her own power. She was then transported to the Maui Memorial Medical Center by paramedics.

Fire officials say that Maui County Ocean Safety officers and other first responders cleared the ocean from Kalama Park to the Kihei Boat Ramp, but shark warning signs in the area have since been taken down.
