A 66 year-old man was bitten – by something – this morning at Cove Park around 9 a.m. today. Sirens echoed throughout south Maui as first responders converged on the scene.
First precautions were for a shark bite incident, according to MauiWatch. However, lifeguards on the scene report that the bite looks more like an eel bite – far more narrow and V-shaped. As a matter of practice, water safety officers on jet skis are checking the area for any signs of a shark.
