A Lake Oswego man was bitten by a shark while in Maui.
Maui Ocean Safety officers responded to a report that a 61 year-old man had been bitten in Kihei Friday morning. The victim was snorkeling about 200 yards off shore when he was attacked. He suffered multiple lacerations to his lower left leg and thigh area, but is said to be in good spirits despite undergoing surgery.
The type and size of the shark remain unknown, but the beach where the attack occurred has been closed off to swimmers as a precaution.
