02/21/2013 - Jacob Lansky - Hawaii - No Injury

Post by alb »

At about 6 p.m. Feb. 21, Jacob Lansky was surfing about 75 yards offshore of Paia Bay when a 6-foot-long reef shark bit the rail of his foam board, according to state Shark Task Force spokesman Randy Honebrink. Lansky was not injured.

Massey said Tuesday's victim and his wife own a condominium at the resort and arrived Monday. The couple vacation on Maui a couple of times a year.

It was the first shark attack Massey said he was aware of in the water fronting the resort in the 15 years he's worked there. "I swim out there myself," he said.

The area is a popular snorkeling spot because of turtles that frequent it.
