Man in serious condition from shark bite while swimming Kaiwi Channel


A 58-year-old man is in serious, but stable condition this morning following a shark attack while swimming in the Kaiwi Channel, also known as Molokai Channel.

The man was reportedly swimming between the west coast of Molokai and east coast of Oahu for about nine hours when a shark bit him in the abdomen, according to a Honolulu Emergency Medical Services report.

He was brought to the boat ramp at Maunalua Bay, where paramedics performed advanced pre-hospital trauma life support on him. He was then transported to a hospital in serious, but stable condition.
