Some say the man was lucky to still be alive as the big shark could have easily killed him. While it is still unclear what type of shark attacked him, one thing is certain: The man from Lake Oswego, Oregon is happy he is still alive after what he went through.
Maui authorities declared in an official press release that the man was swimming near a shore in Kihei. He was equipped with a diving mask and a snorkel. At around 9:35 a.m. he was attacked by a shark. Medics were called at the scene and confirmed the man was bit by a shark. Signs of a deep wound were present on the man’s left calf.
The beach was soon closed after the incident and Police are monitoring the area. Because the man was injured he was sent to a nearby Medical Center. There he is getting the proper treatment.
