65-year-old Hawaiian tourist attacked by a shark

The woman was several hundred yards from the kayak in Anaehoomalu Bay in South Kohala when she bit her right thigh. The tourist was landed in a kayak and then taken to the North Hawaii Community Hospital, where she is in a stable state, according to the fire department.

After the woman was bitten and saw no sharks in the water, the fire department flew over several kilometers of coastline. The nearby beaches are closed until further notice, according to the Civil Defense Service of County Hawaii.

The bite was about 5 cm in diameter and came from a five-foot black-tip reef shark, according to Dan Dennison, a spokesman for the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources. Dennison told CNN that this was unusual.

"[There is] No record of this kind biting anyone in Hawaii, "he said.

This is the third shark attack in the state of Hawaii in 2019, according to the department. The last incident occurred with a victim in a canoe. The shark bit on the side of the canoe, but did not hurt the boatman.

In 2018, three incidents were reported, including an attack in which the victim cost the right leg below the knee. Since 2015, no deaths have been reported.
