Shark Attacks Big Island Surfers
Fortunately, no injuries were reported after a second shark attack at Lymans Bay, Hawaii Island. At about 1:15 p.m. on May 25, Teresa Fernandez was surfing out when her board was bumped: a shark bit and pulled on her board. This is the second bite within a week – the last attack was May 21 – and the two attacks occured in the same spot.
The Department of Land and Natural Resources temporarly closed the beaches to keep people out of the water, but reopened them Thursday.
