HI: Shark bites diver off Maui during tournament

November 4, 2012

From FoxNews.com

MAUI, Hawaii –  A diver has suffered severe cuts to his right ankle after being bitten by a tiger shark off Maui.
 
A Maui County Fire Department spokesman said the 30-year-old Kahului man and his partner were participating in a diving tournament Sunday when he felt something tug on his leg.
 
Lee Mainaga said the shark, believed to be about 15-foot tiger shark, circled back after biting the man.  The man bled profusely and his diving partner used their tag-line to create a tourniquet and pull him to shore.
