WAILUKU, Hawaii — A 61-year-old Oregon man has been bitten by a shark in waters off Maui.
Maui County said Friday the man was snorkeling with another man about 200 yards off Kihei when the shark attacked.
The Oregonian identified the man as Thomas Floyd Kennedy of Lake Oswego.
The county said the man suffered multiple cuts on his lower left leg and thigh.
He told authorities the shark’s head was about two feet wide, but it isn’t known what type of shark attacked him.
After treatment by lifeguards, he was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center.
