58-Year-Old Man Bitten by Shark in Maui

A 58-year-old man suffered a shark bite earlier today while in the waters at Ka`anapali Shores on the island of Maui.

The victim was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center for treatment.  He had a six inch bite wound in the shape of a shark's mouth on his thigh.

The victim described the shark's head as being the size of a basketball.  Surfers in the area had earlier spotted a four foot shark which lifeguards believed to be a reef shark.
