A 60-year-old male surfer was attacked by a shark in Kauai waters Wednesday afternoon. The incident happened at about 1:20 p.m. at the surf spot known as Pakala’s.
Officials say the victim, identified as Lorrin of Kalaheo, was surfing with two friends at the west side surf break. Lorrin told officials that the shark, estimated to be 10 feet in length, bit his foot. He was taken to the Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital by a private vehicle. His condition is unknown at this time.
State Department of Land and Natural Resources Conservation Enforcement have posted shark warning signs on a half-mile stretch of the beach.
