A surfer was bitten on both legs by a shark Sunday on the Big Island of Hawaii, marking the eighth shark attack this year in state waters.
KHON2 News reports that Sunday's attack involved a 16-year-old boy at Pohoiki Beach, also referred to as Isaac Hale Park, in Puna.
The boy, who was rushed to Hilo Medical Center, was reported to be in good condition, with deep lacerations across both legs.
Earlier Sunday on the opposite side of the island the sighting of a large tiger shark off Hapuna Beach Hotel resulted in daylong beach closures there and at nearby Mauna Kea Beach.
Before Sunday, the shark spotlight had been on Maui, where a series of bites and sightings have put lifeguards and beachgoers on edge.
The most recent incident off Maui was an attack last Wednesday on a 20-year-old German tourist. Her right arm was severed by a shark while she snorkeled off Palauea, or White Rock Beach.
