A young man sitting on an 8-foot surfboard in Oahu on Saturday was attacked by a shark, which bit his elbow and wrist, leaving him to bleed profusely.”You kind of just saw blood everywhere,” surfer Ryan Hailstones told KHON2.com. He was about 20 feet from the attack adding, “It was beautiful, glassy, really good waves and all of a sudden you hear someone yelling ‘Help! Shark! Help!’ I just saw the fin going back-and-forth, back-and-forth while he’s screaming trying to fight the shark off,” he said.
Several surfers brought the 23-year-old man to the shore and made a tourniquet from their surf leashes. Paramedics took the man to the hospital, where he was in serious condition.
