Shark bites girl off Maui waters
Initial reports indicate the girl suffered a 12-inch wound on her calf.
Makena is located along the same shoreline where the shark-ravaged remains of a diver were found Friday. Autopsy results indicate Anthony Moore, 45, of San Jose, Calif., likely died before his body was attacked by sharks.
On Dec. 21, a San Diego man lost part of his left hand when he was bitten by a shark while swimming several hundred yards off Keawakapu Beach in Kihei. On Feb. 1, a kayaker reported being bumped by a large shark about a mile off Makena State Park.
