‘His thigh was open': Boy, 10, left seriously injured by ‘shark attack’ in Hawaii.

Mike Ward told Hawaii News Now: ‘I said “Paddle towards me and I’ll paddle towards you,” and I said, “What’s wrong?” And he said, “A shark is following me.”‘ Kelly Krohne, an off-duty lifeguard who told Hawaii News Now he brought the injured boy to shore, says the boy suffered a wound to his leg about 60-70 yards offshore. I got hit!”‘ A Department of Land and Natural Resources spokeswoman says crews were sent to close the beach and post shark warning signs from Keaau to Lahilahi Point. EMS spokeswoman Shayne Enright told the Fox affiliate: ‘He suffered serious injuries to his right leg, several puncture wounds and a gash, but thankfully it wasn’t worse than that.’
